Elysium Laundromats

Elysium Laundromats  Laundromat


When you live alone

It all comes together

At the Laundromat.


Money-grubbing washers,

Flippant dryers,

Crossword puzzlers and

The carnival ride centrifuges waiting for my quarters.


The envoy of filth makes a “final” appearance,

Only to be immersed in the clean waters of



O, fountain of youth,

You left me alone and


Among the churning kilns.
