Day 14 cleaning up


First draft for Day 14

Cleaning up

Such a lot of noise across the road
water gunning her block paving
splashes of dark grey muck swept
from side to side into the gutter
self-splattering her flowered crop
pants and shirt. She won’t stop until
the blessed bricks are as clean
as a freshly imagined house
that will bear no memories
of how they did this together
laughing at the dirt on their clothes
and him only dead this past month.
