Ironed Pillow Covers

The tag of a tea bag
flutters as the fan
circulates the conditioned air
through our inhabited domicile.

A cupboard door left unhinged
after a glass of milk or orange juice.

One unmatched sock, lonely
on the living room rug,
its mate chewed ever so slightly
by the rescue dog who is now
napping on our bed, wrinkling
the ironed pillow covers.
