Instead of Housecleaning

Instead of housecleaning
it helps to think of it
as visiting the things I love—
painted Italian candlestick
San Ildefonso pot
my paleography collage
with bits of a Larousse
cottonwood drum
the alabaster jar
from the hilltown
of the Etruscans
where I walked
with mad dogs
in the noontime sun—
my long-ago
down to this
dreamy circling
of the threadbare cloth,
this unheroic
shooing off of dust.
