Awash

the washing machine gurgles

towels  clothes

worn  stained

sheets

curtains

coats

pants

frocks

we should remain naked and hairy forever

hairy legs

hairy armpits

hairy upper lips

straggly beards all round

shave  shave

shave

shave shave

showers

baths

toothbrushes

wash the hair

wash the pits

wash the private bits

wash wash

wash

wash wash

wash the floor

scrub the loo

scrub the shower too

one thousand different detergents on hand

yet

the dirt treads in

the dirt floats in

the dirt stays in

waiting

in corners

for visitors

to see

but not before
