Hallowed Territory

Flip flop wash

Washing flip flops in the sink may
seem indulgence too undignified to
dismiss without difficulty; but say
they’re yours and then there’s an
efficiency such the process has a
weight on circumspect thinking,
defence is panned by an artfully
cautious way of being correct

Prospects of detection can deter
any man who has yet to learn a
cardinal rule of tidiness, leave it
neater than it was and you’re a
gem eyed with vague suspicion
not an irretrievable renegade

We make didactic change much
less artefacts than price to pay
for kitchen sinks failing to live up
to impossible expectations we’ve
either agreed or understand
they’re hallowed territory
