Laundry Time

Baby gros, tiny as dolls clothes

romper suits and pretty frilly dresses.

Mini appliqué jeans , little Tiggers

and trucks, bouncing on the line.

School uniforms, small and smart

washed clean of mud and primary paint.

Blazers and kilts, high school hate.

Black, black and more black, all the same.

Fashion statements, clothes worn once,

laundered to newness

whilst time

rushes on.
