Wrung Out

Wrung Out.
damp, listless, rumpled.

but the mealtime messes are
finally clean.

oh.

so.

clean.

hazard the hopeful exhalation.

then the paint spills
on the laptop
the bed
and Alexa.

hopeful exhalation
becomes a sharp intake
of fully-oxygenated breath
and a jarring shot of adrenaline.

turn on the faucet,
and get back to being Useful.
the time to be Wrung Out
has already passed.

Wash.

Rinse.

Repeat.
