washin’ ya dishes

5 March 2019

scrub scrub scrub scrub scrub

everywhere steam dizzies damp

bread bits spinning in spillover

 

currents squelching feet so soggy

fingers fry shelving hot clanging

pans from conveyor belt sprays

 

chemical concoction jszcschhhhhhh

makes sticky tees smell like wet pork

carcass fat creeping up arms

 

unplugging scrappy sink waste

arrestor not stopping sloppy

plates nor wrinkled noses at kitchen

 

hands working at wasting

meals created before

this cycle
