Rearranged


parked the car
reparked the car
bought groceries & paid the bill
in the cart she rearranges them
unpacked the groceries into the closet
she rearranges them
set the table and then –
she rearranges it
washed & stacked the dishes
she rearranges them
long ago I said I do –––

now I wonder who this person is

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
