One Day

Standard

The laundry sat unwashed

Bills unpaid
Phone calls not returned
Grass uncut
Appointments missed
Beds unmade
Groceries not bought
Door unpainted
Letters not mailed
Floors unswept
Garden not weeded
Taxes not filed
Gym not visited
Checks not deposited
Tub unscrubbed
Clothes not put away
Dog not walked

Taking a day off from adulthood
She served leftover cake for breakfast
And yet, everyone survived
