Some Days

You let the laundry go
Skip the dishes. Skip the bills
Shut off the computer
Quiet the house.
Forget about all the events crowding the calendar
Teeball, spring pictures, birthday parties, appointments, perscriptions.

Settle back into bed after they lay their own heads down
Read a book
Take a nap
Rest yourself.

It's a head cold.
No big deal.
It will pass
Order will regain.
Enjoy the break.
