Tuesday writing prompt: No dirty dishes!


He wants them scrubbed

and chipped of color

until they are dry and cracking

ready for the next gorge


she wants them shiny and old

with stains of color matching

their shape

a piece of art, not an item


I am more than just your glass!

I was there when you got married

I held her ring for you!

Don’t throw me in the trash!


Shine me until i’m new

I’m waiting in your cuboard

To serve my purpose

Come find me again!


And don’t stack up the sink

The dishwasher is hungry
