children crying
poopy diapers
a sick mother
these, not disposable

languished understandings
calming nights
soothed wounds
these, not disposable

Easy sex and flimsy conversations, cheap dinners with fancy makeup, another passing fancy
these are disposable

Christmastime singing
Easter prayers
happy birthdays with banners and balloons

wrestled problems
determined hope
eased frustrations
