For my husband

I just want you to know
that I am so grateful
that the bills miraculously get paid
and I had nothing to do with it
and that the countertop magically reappears
after all the paperwork
has somehow migrated into the filing cabinet
and that the dishes
find their way
from the sink to the dishwasher
and back to the shelves
and that the bathtub
gets scrubbed
(my knees really appreciate that)
and that the dog gets walked
even though it's raining
or I am being lazy
which is all the time
and that my dinner shows up
at work
because you carried the heavy dishes
and I just want you to know
that I love you, too.
