Watching him wash the dishes

I watch from the dinette
as he puts on the too small yellow
latex gloves and my flowered apron.

He changes the station to KBCO
from NPR, the noise of hard rock
fills the air: I put an ear plug
in my one good ear.

Most of the dishes end up washed
but a few linger on the counter
waiting for me to finish
the job.
