A Year of Poems – Day 270

A pot
black browned iron
crusted warm with food
glued threatening rot

A stain
hardened despite circles
dipped and brushed again
to scrub is death

A cloth
water dipped circled
dipped again circled
warmth washing warmth

An image
pot inside iron
gleams past the stain
washed with the cloth

A layer
removed clockwise counter
dirt washed from mirror
the image shines

image cleaned, restore
pot, plate, house, mirror, hand, face
friend, life is cleaning
