Apron

I’m holding you together
A cut and paste poster board
Full of imagination
In the silences between words

Washing plates in the kitchen sink
Bubbles on my elbows
a 12 inch knife held under the water

Swirling red sauce down the drain
Yellow sponge
Removing evidence of cake
Drip drying on the rack

Another three weeks
At least
Perhaps the blooming flowers
Will bring better conversation

Once the rains move on
