Now, if my household would just
- vacuum its own rugs,
- clean out its own refrigerator,
- hang up its own clothes,
- sort its own excess,
- clear the kitchen table of its mail and books and whatnot, and
- do the thinking for me about my poetic project, so that I can
- revise my manuscript into the winner I know it can be,
then I would
- solve the debt ceiling crisis.
I don't think that's too much to ask.
