Every Morning the Dishes Get Washed

From the collection published in 2021, The Immediate and No Sooner.

Every Morning the Dishes Get Washed

and again
the carrying on
the kitchen
the marmalade discontents
smeared bravo sinkside

the dishes
clatter vexation
with soapsuds
gone stone cold
the breakfast stragglers regroup
in stacks on shelves. Peace.
