rinse repeat by Lucy Yang

Poem title: rinse    repeat
Poet name: Lucy Yang
Poem: instead of writing    I wash words 
in they go    under    over
I squat    and watch the cyclops 
around    around
I squeeze    bleach and repeat 
in they go    again    again
instead of writing    I wash words
End of poem.
