Keep Trying

42 more days
i don’t know what else to read
i don’t know what else to write
i want to open the packages
and i want to leave them closed
i want to know where they will go
how many bibs will stay stored
how many diapers will be used
how many holes will be made in the walls
how many times the cats will scratch their claws
into the new lilac rug
how many hours will i lose
how many can i keep
can i pick up the curtains for sure
next week?
the nesting
syndrome
hanging
colors
pink
blue
lilac
comfy
washing the clothes
more clothes
more clothes
wet still from rushing
now dry
fussing
over milk that has not been spilt
wilting flowers
jasmine dying
“do plants have juju?” you asked
i don’t know
i don’t know
i don’t know
but let’s keep trying–
