Welcome to the mind of my husband,
While he doesn’t like to cook–
except for microwaving
his own morning oatmeal and
preparing Purina Pro Plan
Turkey with Rice entree for the cat–
he does like to clean up both
his own morning dishes and
any stray things left in the sink,
bowls, spoons and utensils,
shiny-clean, laid out
to dry on the mat.
It makes me grin
every time I take this in,
a kind of snapshot of his mind.
Organized, precise, measured,
disciplined, thorough, mindful.
The perfect-fit partner for a woman
who finds details head-bonking tedious,
who can’t do the same thing the same,
who needs GPS to find the bathroom
and loses her car in the parking garage.
