sunday morning at

sunday morning at
the laundromat,
we are thrust
into the arms of
jesus for the
love of everlasting
death, through the
suited-up pastor
on the corner tv,
asking us to surround
ourselves only

to corner, by

memories

separated –
forfeited or
scored, dark
versus light.
there was a time
when you could
not live without
this,
music to do
laundry to
