. laundry day . by Sonja Benskin Mesher

I am not a silent poet

tried to persuade him to leave the bed.

nice clean sheets today. no, i am staying

in the raggled mess .

like our government*

you know of such things, and what about

the laundry man, he comes tomorrow.

he will be disappointed.

send the cover, keep it clean so no one

notices the mess underneath.

isn’t that what  they* do?

isn’t it?

yes.
