Keeping House

The red cubes there are memories
and the yellow flakes are pictures:

the blue dust comes of journal pages --
Facebook threads -- emails crosscut
and suitable for framing.

Turn your hands.

Make them into plastic scoops
nine feet wide, conformable
to any wood or tiled floor;

and now your hair, or beard,
becomes a handy broom.

Sweep, sweep, sweep, sweep:
Fold, shake down, repeat.
