The Mistress of Minutiae


 I am the Mistress of Minutiae

High Priestess of Hyper-vigilance

Goddess of God-damned Details

So sensitive to your needs;

So ignorant of my own.

A self-appointed higher power

in human form

placed among you to

notice issues that you didn’t see,

solve problems before they arise,

and criticize the cloud around

your silver lining.

Before the party’s over

I clear the tables and hoist the chairs,

my place in heaven

cemented by my many good deeds.

God, it’s lonely up here.
