    -------------------------------------------


    He hung heavy over a pile of last night's clothes: Soaked, Cigarette-Infused, with just a hint of last calls and shoulda-went-home-withs.

    He grabs the mound from off the floor and smells the aroma of a night better spent sober.
    Wits about him, he grabs for his wallet--down a 20, no two 20s--and still woke up alone.

    No girl, no awkward moments--
    no asking, "How about some eggs?"
    Just silence.

    He lifts the clothes and begins loading them into the washer.
    Who actually separates the colors from whites?
    Women, maybe--but no woman here.

    He pours the detergent, hypoallergenic, but still enough of a scent to blow away a dozen Marlboros and the occasional bowl against better judgement.

    The water starts to fill;
    drowning a jumble of underclothes, buttondowns, and the jeans he had to take off himself.

    He sets the cycle.
    The clothing blurs in the soapy water: messy, clean, water trodden.

    The rinse cycle: the earth was spinning without him, without a her. The self remains soiled.
