The Wash

Nicholas Bradley

Darks from pastels,

from the rest,

fabrics from

heavy cotton.
In one pile

shirts and socks;
in the other

your still pill-
less sweater, my

running shorts

that heat will
destroy, rain

jackets that
can’t withstand

overload. This ...

* poem, in its entirety, is available in the printed version of the current issue.


Nicholas Bradley is a poet, literary critic, and editor. He lives in Victoria, British Columbia.
