The Janitor

With
A
Dustpan
And
Broom

I
Sweep
My
Troubles
Away

Because
I’m
The
Janitor.

Mopping

Swinging a
Mop
Working
Up a sweat
So salty,
Splitting
Fingernails, milky
Moonlit rivers flowing
From inside a latex
Glove. I’m certain this is why
They call it a job
A dollar hard earned
One appreciates.
And just the small
Things in life
A cup of
Cold water
Swallowed
By the sea
Filled
With treasure.

The YMCA

Smearing
A
Rainbow
Across
The
Glass
Door

I’m
Cleaning
The
Smudges
Away
So
The
Guest
Can
Shine
In.

The
Parking
Lot
The
Limit

Blue
Skies.

 Sunny and Warm

Cleaning the
Windows with a
Brown paper
Towel and Windex,
Looking at the weather that awaits
Me, the world. It is predicted
To be sunny and warm.
I think I’ll leave my
Coat on the
Hook at work,
When I go home.
