Thanks Mom

When I was young,

I used to sweep the floor

for my mother.

I’d finish my dust pile

and she’d start her own

from what I missed

after she thanked me.

————————–

I still sweep the floor

for my mother.

I often fear

that my dust pile

is not big enough,

so I thank myself

and sweep the corner

one more time
