Clean Valentine

The holy art of cleaning
Is hard to master
The first to be postponed
Until looms the disaster
Like washing the feet
Of the physical world
On a regular basis
She lived upon her knees
Leaving behind an immaculate
Journey of floors and stairs
Awaiting laughter and tears
And fed four children
In her own swept home
Taught the fine art of dusting
Performed every day
Moving death out of the way
