She bent low, being tall
Light touched her face from the window, touched the bubbles
She was careful with the water
Don’t let it flow, don’t let it waste itself unheeded down the drain
She was careful with the soap
Dilution, always, mostly water
Shaken in the worn bottle, coaxing out suds
Your eye can see all this and then
Come, come around to the side and watch
Her lips which betray the words
Her heart is whispering to God
Have you seen eyes like that?
Seeing dishes and Heaven, at once?
Come away now
Here is every goodness at once
And we too must begin.
