This poem made me think of people when they die. Like half my family did
last night during that shooting

Yah this poem is just about someone who died and the worst job after
someone dies is cleaning up their messes they left before they died.

this poem is how one must put aside thier feelings and love for the person
who died in order to do all the chores that must be done. The love must be
"swept up" and put away until u meet them again.

After the death of al oved one, a person has so much to do--arrangements,
decisions, telephone calls, food to prepare for visitors. You have to
"sweep up the heart" (not be emotional)so you can tend to the immediate
chores and business. There will be never be other love like this. I suppose
that it's essential to "sweep up the heart" in order to funcion.
"sweep up the heart: in order to continue livin.
