The little robot inside me

When my husband is away
and my baby is asleep
the little robot inside me

that just takes care of things

sputters and crumples
and lays on its side

I thought that with the extra time
I would pamper myself
a long bath
paint my toes
read that novel everyone says is so good

but instead I allow a flat daze
to envelop me

I eat handfuls of cereal
I watch youtube
I stay up late
for no reason

it is strangely peaceful
this quiet place of no harm
but no hint
of nurture.
