one more day


so tell me,


am i a
mean mother
for letting that
christmas dress
from two christmases ago
sit at the bottom
of the laundry basket
for nearly two months now?

i don't know when
it became her favorite,
but after letting her wear it
several times a week
for so many many months, 
i just couldn't
look at her in it
one more day. . .

It's called Out of Sight, Out of Mind... and apparently it seems to be working. ... or are you not telling the rest of the story?
