Making the Bed

When we wake up, feeling knee deep and years behind,

may our small fixes be enough for today.

 

May making the bed order all the chaos,

washing our face silence the static,

shoveling the drive make something clear.

 

If these tiny tasks are all we can hold  for the next hour or three,

let them be silly,

let them be placeholders,

let them be kindling,

and let them be enough for now.
