breakfast dishes

there’s that you helped last night
and whether it’s your turn
and if you cooked
and who else isn’t helping

and sometimes
you do them anyway
despite all that
or because

someone has to

regardless

that’s family
the long and short of it
that you don’t always see
at 13
or even
always
at 43
