Hung Out to Dry – Poem by Diane Webster

Poetry by Diane Webster

The wooden clothes pin
bleaches and dries
like a skull
staring wide-eyed
at the sunrise.
Heat steals moisture
from every pour, every grain
like the wooden clothes pin
when it bites linen sheets
and refreshes cells
rationing sips for a week
until next wash day.
