Peanut Butter

We wash dishes
just to eat peanut butter
off of them
with our bare hands

We wash dishes
just to throw them
at ugly wallpaper

We wash dishes
just to kiss our husbands
goodbye
and bake chocolate cakes
with tears or rat poison
in the batter

We wash dishes
just to serve them slices
just to sit next to their wilting shoulders
eating peanut butter
with our bare hands
