liberation through housework

the floor is a canvas. the broom, a brush.
and i,
the consummate artist,
am sweeping up a masterpiece.
cleaning the toilet as it should be cleaned–
equal amounts of pride and care added to the soap–
is a task of holy and heroic proportions.
scrub brush in hand,
i stand kissing the lips of god.
