Lady Sweeper.

Sweeping

Traces of time

Left behind

Each day:

She struggles to erase

Traces of existence.

Dust cleaner

Swallows evidence

of daily life,

If I clean

The floor

Today

Maybe tomorrow

Might not come,

Future is a dream

Of hope,

She cleaned,

Until white hairs

Came,

Human machine

Well programmed

In daily chores,

Living in poverty,

Cleaning life

Traces,

Until death comes,

With broom

In hand,

They say

She was

A good cleaner,

Cleaning life,

Sub-existing,

Forgotten,

On the way,

To the funeral,

World mourns not,

she is replaced,

A new cleaner,

Arrives in cries,

Waiting to fill

Her space

Again.
