Washing for Comfort (A 40°/60° Collaboration)

She’s a member of washers anonymous
and lives life at 40 degrees
Separating blacks and whites
spin cycling out in the breeze

Items tangled in pillowcases
Half eaten wholly odd socks
Colours running away with themselves
speechlessly stood at the soap box

Washing for comfort daily
a set reminder of the humdrum
Programmed economy tumbling
soaking then draining the numb
