This Beautiful Mess

Toys strewn across carpets-
mini booby traps waiting for unsuspecting feet
clamoring quietly through the dark.
Cheerios in cracks of the couch
and hidden under coffee tables.
Socks missing mates
like old friends distanced by unknown circumstances.
Desks, and walls, and furniture tattooed
with robin’s egg blue and sea green scribbles.
Kitchen floors scattered with plastic spoons
and pots and pans. Perfect for drumming.
In each room you’ve left your mark,
leaving behind a house full of smiles.
