Some days I find twenty dollar bills in the laundry.
Some days, I find plastic tubes relieved of their chapstick.
Some days, I find lint and dog hair and besogged receipts left over from lunches long forgotten.
Some days I find love letters and shiny change and missing guitar picks.
Some days, I’m the hero. Some days I’m the villain. Some days, I’m grateful for the treasures hidden in the laundry. Some days I curse the inside-out-socks, the forgotten pocket mementos, the unending cycle of dirty/clean, dirty/clean, dirty/clean.
Some days I find humor in the trap. Some days I find pity.
Some days there’s poetry in the detritus.
Some days, there’s just debris.
Some day I’ll miss all this.
Some day, I’ll wish.
I’ll wish for lint and change; dirty socks and broken toys; receipts and notes; ruined lip gloss and rogue guitar picks.
