Nothing really changes

We roll up spare towels now,
have hollandaise in the fridge,
use a milk frother for our son’s cereal,
have unopened wine on the side,
go to bed when we’re tired,
get up before alarms,
have scented sticks in the bathroom
watch fewer sad dramas,
eat crisps in our pants,
get lost on our own,
count the number of tiles in the shower
in case we’re kidnapped
and need the answer to be freed.
