CLEAN I

Allyson Lupovich 

As If the trees need anymore washing.
It figures to me why sweet cream can often be found
in a marble top refrigerator
but NOT in the bounty of a colorful feast.  

Sweet sleep tonight
you earned it..
Ill watch you away up top
Enjoy how peaceful that bridge looks
When you’re never to cross it 

Ill bake cookies
Brown toast for you
THAT’S FINE.
Ill never wear a crisp white shirt
Ill never feel clean again.
