– royalty at the laundromat –

Thursday night.
6:59 p.m.
Sudzy’s Park Avenue Laundromat.

a queen lioness and her
leopard-coated cub
rinse and repeat their wardrobe.
Lioness shows off her multitasking skills,
on her clothes in the washer,
on  her blue tooth with mammal unknown,
and on her cub in front of her,
asking the one-million annoying questions
cubs ask at that age.
The lioness handles it all
with patience, grace and heart…
a drum so majestic in
its beating.
