    i always liked housecleaning
    even as a child
    i dug straightening
    the cabinets
    putting new paper on
    the shelves
    washing the refrigerator
    inside out
    and unfortunately this habit has
    carried over and i find
    that i must remove you
    from my life



    I always loved this poem. Just thought I'd share it with those who never got a chance to read it. I think it's a really cool poem.

    I didn't recognize this poem by the title, but once I started reading it, it sounded familiar. This poet does have the knack for making an on target point, doesn't she? Thanks for sharing this.
