-- after Ron Padgett

Down here in the laundry room 
I lord over a tiny city
made of cleaning products.
For these base-colored buildings,
I am a tidy act of god 
calling forth natural disasters 
named Speed Wash
or Delicates.  I hope
you'll come home soon 
before an entire civilization,
a brief history, the epic song
of our two dirty lives
is cleaned to death.
