Thoughts in a Laundromat

A free verse poem

By Leslie WritesPublished 2 months ago Updated 2 months ago 1 min read

Another urgent trip to the laundromat

Our dryer is still broken

Three weeks now

They need to order a new part

I remember when

We didn’t have our own

At our apartment in PG County

Years ago, before the kid

That laundromat had a different vibe

Or maybe it was us vibing differently

I’m washing Jimmy’s jeans

His costume shirts

And Homer Simpson PJ pants

Always the same telenovela on the TV

Tu vida es mi vida

(Your life is my life)

    My washing machine retired a few days ago so we had to get a new one. Hope your dryer gets fixed soon. Loved your poem!
