Poem: Dishes

(This mundane-ness has me… At least my goal is succeeding. Sort of. It’s good enough!)

Dishes

food was eaten
things were left
crust has collected
overnight
i wept
the dishwasher’s hands
turned to prunes
scrubbing
the waste of fools
time is spent
cleaning well
only to repeat
tomorrow
this same score
