I wash a great deal
to remove the smell of fear,
the free floating dread.

    Been there. Sometimes still there. I go in and out of it, maybe that’s the best way to put it. Something stronger than soap? (I could jump into a washing machine?)

    Love this, the poem and the photo. And even better together, they multiply the impact.

What do you think?
