under the rug

Everything!

she swept
Everything!
under the
rugs

the tattered
old ones

the cheap
Ikea ones

the vaguely
pretty “Oriental”
looking ones

they all got
a bit of dirt
beneath their
threads.

She hid
Everything!
so well,

or so she
thought–

the trouble
with sweeping
Everything!
under the rugs
all the time

is that
after a while
lumps start
forming

and
Everyone!
eventually
starts stumbling.
