Finish the dishes

before you slip into bed
while I read and make notes in the margins
glasses at the tip of my nose
paying you no mind when you wander through
looking for a book you mislaid

Don’t think that because you showered
and shaved a second time today
that will relieve you of your turn
for the dinner chores
I am on to you

Perhaps a lesser woman
a kinder woman would see your eyes
and let it go, or watch you
do your cute dance with the towel
don’t let me down, don’t forget foreplay
with kitchen rag and sink and rack
