Why do fingernails grow before children can clip them for themselves?
And noses run.
Ears need cleaning.
Hair is not Kleenex, not a napkin. Someone tell her, explain it.
Buy the food. Eat the food. Crap the food. Clean the toilets. Remove trash. Sweep the crumbs. Wipe this. Dust that. Wear clothes. Wash clothes. Fold clothes.
Clean the tub so that we can clean the humans. So that…
My existence can have a purpose.
Sprint to stand still.
Find a chair. Think too much. Cry. Get quiet. Teach me, God. How does a family work?
And when I get quiet. I do understand.
