Unnecessary

written by: Tina Privitera-Reynolds

 

I am what I do.
And what is that?

I am the string in the bean;
I am the vein in the shrimp.

I water lilies in still ponds;
I blow dandelions in wind.

I clean the bar soap;
I scrub the dirty foot.

I sort the heaps of refuse;
I pencil mark the edges.

I am burst appendix pain;
I am a doll without a child.

I am what I do.
And what is that?
