carwashing

Drip drip drip

The clean of washing sudsy

cold water gathers the

road grime and neglect-

Vanishing,

seeping through asphalt,

soaking down drains.

 

Inside the café with the viewing-pane glass

We sip sip sip

As we await the valet,

alternately trapped or free,

But united by the futility

Of this short-lived exercise.

 

Then we head out on the dirty road again,

Sixty five dollars poorer

 

And squeaking with

temporary polished newness
