CLEANING

by Joanna Gilman Hyde

The Hawk West Desk Window 12:15pm

Two Jehovah’s Witnesses

knocked on My Side Door

while I was mopping upstairs

& tried to get Me

to believe in Satan

but I would have none of it:

“I give The Devil no credence”

They said, “So You believe Mankind is responsible

for all the bad things?”

I said, “In part, but I believe

in The Reconciliation of Opposites”

“What’s That?”

I told Them I wanted to get back

to My Cleaning
