maintenance – August 31

8.31

drops in eyes, pills in

places, lay down and

stretch that back,

 

oil those hinges, check

the lint trap, screen

that face and fast.

 

slide the dipstick,

test those tires, air

pressure’s good or not

 

grease those skids

hold that party, gather

some notes on the spot.

 

how’m I doing, how’re

we doing. maintenance’s

much more than we thought.
