i'll curl up
in the dishwasher

somewhere in
between the

plates and bowls
and you'll start

the heavy duty cycle
because maybe

after hours of hot
water scalding me

i'll finally
be clean enough

for you.

I didsagree with both of the people that commented. I think your poem was extremely creative imaginative and the length was perfect. Short sweet and to the point. Very economical. :)

I dis-agree with Lilly's comment in that it needs more, because I definately feel there is a solid enough argument here but it needs to be more solid. I believe you need to work on some flow, but other than that I olike your style.
