The Excitement of Laundry Lists

The Excitement of Laundry Lists

You have never been tempted to read
other peoples shopping lists
or laundry lists.
It is better to go shopping
for yourself.
I recommend against sorting
a stranger's dirty clothing.

I can understand how few
might want to read a strangers poem
or short story unless
threatened with a sharp object. 

Who, otherwise, would be foolish
enough to waste even three minutes
reading a stranger's writing,
unless they guessed that
the conclusion might culminate
in a tiny smile crawling somewhere
between their chin and nose?

Not face scrubbed with sweaty socks.
