finding the definite in what is not at all

Things I did today that other woman did many years ago:

I wash my face inside a basin sink and splash water on the floor.
I wonder if the man I love loves me.
I drink coffee in the mornings.
I wake up in the dark.
I smile at people I would rather not.
I call my mother and ask her: how do you forgive people?
And my mother tells me what many women have told their daughters:
it's not easy, but you must do it to be, in turn, forgiven.
And:
don't forgive until forgiveness has been asked for.
