from “my mother” — Dirty Socks and Pine Needles

“When I was a child, I memorized my mother’s hands as she folded clothes.

My favorite smell is clean laundry, because

it reminds me of my mother and Saturdays spent at the laundry mat watching my clothes tumble

instead of in the living room watching cartoons.

Everything is gonna be all right, she would sing in soap bubbles.”
