Then, do not read down until you give up.
Believe me, nothing deep about this!
The canvas filled with dirt =
water paint away =
water to clean said dishes.
Underwater songs of spoons =
anybody who does dishes
knows this one by heart.
grasped them with gloved hands =
the water's too hot without gloves!
See? A meaningless little throwaway. But I enjoyed the Underwater songs of spoons part too much to not post.
It was inspired by a chat with Jenn. I said "I have to go soon and do the dishes -- there is no poetry in that."
She said "Sure there is!"
So I tried writing the poem. Originally, I didn't have an ending line, and the poem trailed off with "... ugh this sucks."
Meaning the poem,
but I guess,
the dishes, too.
I just spent way too much space explaining this trifle.
Much thanks for readin' it.
