The List of Undone Things, by Anonymous

Clean the kitchen; secure

iron pipes under the sink

Bedside table: finish tile

mosaic, reread dead

teacher's letter; clean

spilled ink

Dogs: be here, be here

be here

Bills: house, insurance,


Floors: clean some

replace others

Unpack from the trip

to Paradise, to hope,

future, bliss

(though Bliss, pop. 318,

was closed)

Send messages to



Sons' father: I know

there will be

no more child

support. Ok.

Traveling friend with

chronic frightening


Laundry: fold until the

couch appears

Rewrite the list of undone


as some things

become done

But first: wake up, wake

up, wake up
