do the wash

the volume is slowly being turned up
stress overtaking
obvious need for breaking
away from the norm
into quietness to recoup
a time out for the mommy
to breath slowly
to think only
of soothing things that comfort
of what is right
of what is good
time slows and swirls and whispers "it's ok"
as I regret losing my cool
and having a sharpness to my tone
all of me pleading for some time alone
to gather myself up
to toss myself into the laundry
and end up warm and fresh and reeking of Bounce
ok, I am ready again to be the mom
ready to be patient and kind
no more shouts
