That Girl (2020 NaPoWriMo #28)

That girl had a dorm room:
Sheets in hospital corners,
Underwear folded, just so,
SAMI meant inspections.

Who knew she would still
Fold underwear, just so?
Make her bed every day?
Even hang her clothes that way?

That the room represented
a way of life
That she followed for twenty-
six more years?

And when she retired,
remnants living in the folds,
she wouldn’t miss it?
One bit?

      1. This must sound insane, but because I enjoy the sense of accomplishment after cleaning a mess, I need to let things accumulate for a while to get gratification. The daily upkeep is just not satisfying enough.😂
