“Getting Ready to Get Ready”

Knolls of clothing dot the rug, a
Rainbow of empty plastic hangers
Sway with every pass.  Hot rollers
Get a little hotter, round and rectangle
Compacts litter the counter, waiting to
Give her a face to face the world. 

She picks up things and puts them down,
Making decisions and easily changing her
Mind.  A timid little queen of a tiny kingdom,
Running her life within the walls of her
Walk-In, avoiding the subjection that waits
Outside the closet door.

Poetic Asides- 
Prompt: procrastination/proactive
