Day 26 Write about an area in your life that you’d like to improve.

nothing in the fridge,

impressive pile-up in sink,

let’s Noah’s for brunch.

three loads—wash + dry;

dust + vacuum + mop, too;

is it break time now?

uneven stitches—

sewn in, pulled out, sewn; redo—

our well-loved bedspread

to know my body,

read its rhythms; intimate,

the backs of my hands

rising with closed lids,

fingertips to the white sky—

tired, sunless morn

ease under covers,

put it aside + melt down;

tomorrow, promise

swish of coconut,

evening primrose + sole drops,

tea for digestion
