Mining Gold from Dirty Dishes – A Golden Shovel Poem

“Now everything is easy ‘cause of you and our house”

Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young
Now comes the wet warm soapy cleaning
Everything that was dirty – dishes, pots, pans, cutlery
Is soon clean – not ad sparkling clean but
Easy to call clean, easy to feel pleasure
‘Cause what once was unusable dirty is now, as happens so
Often, clean and usable, a source and promise of pleasure like
You yourself, your presence, your love
And your willingness to make your home
Our very own together
House.
