She Pulled the String

She pulled the string
And dropped the drapes
Clicked all the locks on the door
Swished the curtains together
Made sure the phone was completely hung up
Smoothed the Afghan on the straight-back sofa
Closed all the cupboard doors
Rearranged the salt-and-pepper shakers on the table
Swept a few crumbs into a dustpan, leaning the broom in a corner
Took a bite of an apple
Sat crosslegged on the blue carpeted floor
Finished the apple
