What I’ve noticed
Is that my lipstick tubes
Take forever to run out.
If only toilet paper would be
As magically recurring and continuing
To be on the roll.
I wondered what would make me work.
Then I bought a fitbit.
Now I am walking up and down the hallways
Of the house just to reach the next full mile.
Lipstick and fitbits. Magical talismans in my life.
