Basket of Life

Oh gibbous laundry basket,
the tide of the floor,
you race the phases of the moon.
colours are in Scorpio today.
whites just ahead in Libra.

wash, wash, wash away
the growing dirt.
spin, spin, spin away the day.
baptise our adornments
in a divine gyre machine.

bless them:
"Give us this day our clean clothes
deliver us from stains
cover our temptations
colour our plain living
make us (at least) look good."

amen, spin, repeat.

our lives are in the tidal zone,
sometimes submerged,
sometimes drying.
always filling the basket
with small stories.

you could be forgiven
for not being convinced
more is being done.
