all the dirty miles

if we could start
with just one square,
with one square inch
to scrub and scour,
to vacuum, rid of all the hair,
summon up our cleaning power
until we had a starting square,
an inch-by-inch pristine,
a model start we could work from
to get the square miles clean,

but we are oh so well aware
that we’ve miles and miles to square,
with so much dirt, with so much hair
so much scum to rub away,
no wonder wonder takes us far
to square another day
