clean pot (working title)

March 29, 2011

pot cover shines with

water beads and

curry

grandma swishes

steel wool, her wrists

are used to making circles

they keep turning

fingers outstretched like a web

I could watch her all day

hands spinning like hands

on a clock spinning

scrubbing the char off

the pot for hours

for years

until the batteries die

in that clock

until arthritis

stops the spinning

until the pot isn’t used anymore
