Ode to Spring
All in one day
Spring sunshine flows through our windows
Windows that are covered with winter-spring dirt
Cats are shedding/roughhousing
Leaving clumps of fur, like chemo-fallout
All over the house
Windows need cleaning
House needs vacuuming.
Ah! My love has emptied the vacuum canister
Vacuum pulls with renewed vigor and
Energy of spring cleaning.
Clumps of cat fur disappear.
Now, about those windows...
