the ceiling

today was meant to be my clean up day
i would make donations, bake cookies
make up a month of lesson plans
alleviate and dissipate my disaster
and vacuum up the remains

but i just finished filing two police reports
because the unexpected is a thief
now today is a lost day, its been stolen from me
its not even noon yet
but all i will do from the afternoon into the evening
is cry into my dog’s hair and look up at the ceiling
