Flu bye

I need to write and work on my home
clean every closet and some drawers, arrange clothes by colors, mostly black

I need to purge old papers
do 10 loads of laundry, find someone else to fold and arrange in my full red dresser

I need to groom my dog and send emails
arrange my contacts into groups, make requests and keep my promises

Missing him, I take a pic of the sunrise and text it
A hard line brings his warm voice to me, it cups
my ear turned cold from just one night away

Daughter awakes, breakfast and she twirls
for today's wardrobe approval and I nod and smile
"Only you can pull that off"

Late and calm this morning
hearts breathe steady through mouths turned up at the corners
Having is better than needing
