‘The Road to Domestos (with or without mop bucket)’ part 1

‘Something shifted today

Something I thought I’d lost

But had simply gone astray

I found that I had gotten over

The pale goodbyes – those white cliffs of Dover

Something shifted today.

I can’t go on hating

And actually participating

With this wall of resounding pain.

No gain.

This poem was inspired by the concept of leaving bad memories behind or hanging laundry out to dry whilst it’s still dirty, though sometimes nature can sometimes do this in a way that is healing.

Top cleaning tip:

Sometimes you have to just acknowledge that however hard you scrub, you can’t get into all the cracks so you have to simply let it be. Stubborn stains that cannot be removed are merely battle scars.
