Poem for Not Vacuuming Enough

Fur clouds drift from under furniture when we walk.

My daughter scoops them up,

handing them to me urgently, saying

“Trash,” quickly, in her eighteen-month-old voice.

Bits of everything lie dead on the floor,

waiting for a quick, sucking rapture

before the gathering of dust and debris begins again.
