Car Wash

Car Wash - WPress1

Keeping up appearances is such a matter.
Rivulets of soaps, soils and suds
Whisked and whirling buffing brush beaters
Patter sounding… thud, thud, swoosh and a swoosh and thud.

Neon’ish lights dictate modes of indication.
Steam hot water, soapy spritz sprayers
Single file slow, destination.
Can’t back out now: wash away these filthy layers.

Blow it dry, throw in the towel — done with this visit.
Hobbled hubs held by sturdy guide rails,
Enter one end and out the exit.
Cleaned and clear as it all seems; let’s spare the details.
