I'll sweep with this

If my mother swept a floor, she had a larger pile of crumbs and dirt than I did. If she wrung out a rag, it was always drier than when I did. Her thoroughness, vision, and strength exceeded mine as a child, so that given the same tools and the same situation, her yields were greater. I suspect that even today she would best me at the poetics of cleaning.
