Mind Soap

Dawn, Dove, Palmolive

Nice sounding names for 

a chore aid. As if cleaning the dishes

Was almost religious.

Maybe an offshoot of 

The old cleanliness next to godliness

Adage, which isn’t even in the Bible;

Or so said a girl I didn’t like. 

She spoke with such confidence

And quiet dignity 

I couldn’t help but

Admire her, despite my dislike.

So now when I think of

Labels, I remember

How my personal feelings

Were shifted by confidence.

Oh to model that 

Which you desire

And to find something

Worth keeping in every instance.
