Doing Dishes Can Be Like Life

It is like that moment when you
plunge your whole hand into the soapy water
and grab the wrong end of your sharpest knife.
You know it’s going to bleed.
You know it hurts.
You just stand there watching the water turn
from bubbly to bloody
and the only thing you can think of
is how you have to start the dishes all over.

    No, the only thing I can think of is, “Maybe I can get out of doing the dishes now.” I’m not always an optimist, but I do have my moments.
