Our Daily Routine by Katie Lewington

in-between moisturizing my forehead
and shaving my legs
a letter fell through the flap
of metal
onto our hallway floor

still

you screwing
undone
that jar of
Colman’s mustard

in the kitchen

smearing a tipped knife
onto a stale bagel
and eating it

your feet shuffle
snuffling in those day of the week socks

to retrieve that letter

and to bring it to me

showering me in crumbs
I read the date given
for my doctors appointment

the unspoken lingers

in the air

you break it
‘I’ll be off then’
