So many things.
It takes a great many paraphernalia to make
baked beans on burnt toast.
The living room…
Full of unread books I don’t trust.
They lead exciting lives.
I swear, they have parties late at night, out of spite!
Could do with a rummage,
spot of Swedish death cleaning.
I’m afraid, Marie Kondo won’t do.
‘Does this spark joy?’ – the wrong question.
Sell? Donate? Recycle? Chuck the lot in the bin?
I know… Postpone.
Good things come to those who wait.
Perhaps in June.
Or, we could build an extension.
