Laundry Day (Free verse) by impert&ent

What’s the difference between a sheet and a phone call? They both hang off a line A means of entangling ourselves In every desire. Along the canal I see you White semaphores in hand Telling me something I don’t understand In the language of fishes Dragonfly wings Reflections on the water Bullrushes whispering Sheets between us Along the line Your silhouette I wrap myself, laughing and spinning.

I’m pegged.
Strung up by my own fabrication.
Strung out on a series of puns
They’ll be my undoing and hampering.

(How to write a poem: never provide opportunities for puns: they'll be taken up, you'll be washed out.)
