THE DUST PAN

by joannagilmanhyde

The Hawk Queen Bed 9:30pm

I’ve swept God under

The Rug

& tidied up My House

I’ve gotten out

the extra chairs

& rolled My Carpet up

I’ve set My Records

in a stack

ready for The Guests

We’re going to have A Party

in My Place

& My House will be

all the neater

with excessive laughter

& dancing faces

where No One questions

Heaven

& has no fear

of Hell
