Lady, Cleaning

After spending the morning
in long sleeves and fleece pajama pants
scrubbing  mineral deposits off bathtubs,
I feel less critical of French maids
in their small, eye-catching attire
and think instead that maybe
they know a thing or two about
practicality.

Heavy cleaning is best done naked,
wearing only socks
and possibly knee pads
to prevent slipping
in the puddles of sweat
that are bound to accumulate.
