Last Night’s Dishes

dishes
little
fleeting
intimations of despair –
grimaces that chill in frigid breath
of winter ice-spawned
shivers brief

how hard is it to put
those things away?

last night’s dishes

okay – out-of-character remnants
yesterday’s lethargy
late late TV shows
long sleep-ins
– or are they?

don’t be drawn in –
leave them be...!
