Feb. 2 - Laundry Day
by Jason Wardell
One gas station receipt:
ten dollars gas,
One dollar and fifty-six cents.
Two movie ticket stubs,
faded thermal printing.
Half of a photobooth printout.
You're rolling your eyes.

heh Little bits of a story are always intriguing to me; I like being able to fill in the rest with my imagination.

it's amazing some of the things we put in our pockets

poems are like receipts in many ways...this piece offers slice of life imagery, and you string them along nicely...love the ending too, peace, jewels

Clever, especially the ending it leaves me smiling...a story of laundry and a life that goes with it. smh
