I’m in the back closet,
Can I interest you in something?
I’ve spent the morning digging
Five dress lengths and some patterns
With only unimportant pieces missing
A frying pan two pots and a lid
I’m sure it will fit something
Already in your cupboards
Here’s old jars of spice
Are they still fragrant? Never mind
Upend them into the compost
And save the jars
Someone should use these things
From the back closet
