CLEANING HOUSE elisabeth horan

So, you know what I am doing to myself
Today. Taking eyes out and scouring,
Disinfecting. Bleaching the valves, the O-
Rings; toothpicks ticking clean the grit edge, and
Grout lines - a toothbrush scrubs it down to bare
This thing that used to clean my teeth, my mouth -
Now all I use is borax and vinegar.
I hear it's safer on grey matter. But
Indeed she's been naughty and I'm very
Old fashioned. God and cleanliness? Was something
Gran used to tell us, no matter; germs are
My brain's bane and mark my word, I'll get 'em out.
You watch me now, easy as one two three,
Easy as taking my eyes out. See?
