Collections of mould

Congregate on ceilings

In a humid subtropical summer


Collections of dust

Congregate under sofas

Waiting and plotting

To destroy the vacuum


Collections of weeds

Wave their victory

Congregating in an unkept garden


Collections gather

Amass and acquire

Hiding with camoflague

Hiding out of sight


My house is filled

With endless congregations

Laughing at me

And my slovenly ways.


But I will last laugh

At least over holidays

When the exhaustion of teaching

Is temporarily suspended

And war is waged

On collections each day.
