Things to Do

Poetry by | February 23, 2014

treadmill for thirty minutes
after a five-round brisk
walking at the plaza

prune the duranta
its leaves cover
the window’s horizon

do the laundry
whites first,
coloreds next

pay the electric bill
arrears only
to avoid disconnection

cut cauliflower, broccoli,
carrots and cabbage
for four seasons

iron uniforms
take a rest
dream a dream

these tasks
will disappear
