A clean limerick
She goes through loads of laundry every night, Stuffing beckoning front loader tight, Presoaking downy delicates fine, And of soft dryer fuzz not a sign! Oh, her fluffing & folding fast delight!
Poetics: Put your Words on Spin Cycle
For this d’Verse poetry prompt, we were instructed to write laundry poems. This could mean anything we want it to:
- Write about a tryst that starts at the laundromat;
- Tell us what happens to all those missing socks;
- Air some ‘dirty laundry’;
- Write a tiny poem that might have been found crumpled in a pocket when sorting the laundry;
- Write a poem full of laundry instructions. How would you wash the moon? A broken heart? Hang a daisy out to dry?
OR: If we were still feeling a little stiff and starched, we could throw 3 (or more) of these words or phrases into our poem dryers and see what tumbled out: fluff & fold; spin cycle; permanent press; wash & wear; cycle; dryer fuzz; machine wash warm; tumble dry; dry flat; presoak; wrinkled; front load; rinse; fine delicates; clothes pins; downy; tide.
