Of Course

You make a good point.
Loving me is about more
than the dishes you don't empty from the washer
your way of clumping my wet clothes
together on the line
the bed unmade, morning and night
the towel on the floor, open drawers.

You are exactly right
that these are all small matters
like the meals you don't cook
taxes filed late
gifts unchosen, letters unsent.

Of course, of course
of course these things are not precious.
But I am.
