Washday Blues


Snow-clouds billow
heavily limp and lashing,

like the wet washing
of an over-zealous mother,

poked by the clothes-poles
of the wood’s trees

and sagging, keen to free
bursting bellies
of a million children,
who will run airily, feathery
to the ground

and if enough fall,
will live past morning.
