The Shining

I’m tidy, and my house is sailboat-small.
I spot-clean when I notice pollen, dust,
or webby threads. I seldom clean it all
at once, but yesterday I tackled much,
although I used no mop or alcohol.
Removing skylight screens, I worked a brush.
I swept and vacuumed and addressed each wall.
I washed the tub and bathroom floor. I thrust
myself to cleaning. Details now enthrall.
