To simplify is not a chore
but hard to fathom: Less is more.
The trinkets in my bulging chest
revealed a fear of want expressed
in acquisitions to abhor.
An angel held my feet before
the fire and gently barred the door
of avarice at my behest
Uncluttered closet, empty drawer —
you’re all I need for home decor.
My overburdened mind was stressed,
but I have been supremely blessed
with help accomplishing the chore
