Story a day: 2.26.16

Prompt: Free forming again.


One chip becomes two because cleaning isn't fun
but I will stay here on my knees until the number's none.

A crumb is not a speck, a hair is not a strand,
to a mind set on cleanliness as an absolute command.

So do not wonder if I spend this time here on the floor
scrubbing every "not so bad" until they are no more.
