She likes the design of my toothbrush

I bought anti-bacterial hand soap for her.

I placed it in an angular fashion

along the edge of the sink.

I swept for her and scrubbed with my fingernails
the tiny bits of "live forever" shit that
called my kitchen counter home.

She told me that art school
only taught her to criticize eloquently.
