Wellesley College NaPoWriMo

by Emily Frisella ’16

Left alone in my mother’s house, I clean:

clear dishes, fill the washer, measure soap.

Its humming fills the kitchen and I hunt

for silver polish to clean now-tarnished spoons

that someone gave her on her wedding day.

There’s so much to do

but not enough to make me stop

(thinking of you)

                                      I scour

until I see my own eyes staring back

from the round hollow of a shining spoon.
