#NaPoWriMo | Day 22 | Bath

there is something about a bath
and the way it helps with fatigue
cold soapy water sliding over skin
killing for a while, all that’s intrigue

especially when it’s 2 am
and its the best (only) weapon if your kitty
you get to work with all gusto
hoping it would help, even if just a bitty

the floor is scrubbed clean
till hands start to feel sore
it elongates process, passes time
in a fruitless attempt to do more

after the deed, one black t-shirt
replaces another
just as the feeling of renewal
sets in, against all other

self-care is important
or so i have heard them say
well, efforts do seem worthy
when i bathe in anticipation of May
