in order to wipe my sins


In order to wipe sweat trickling down my nape; I used a
large bandanna,
in order to wipe blotches of mud from my demeanor; I
used a soft towel,
in order to wipe scalding tea from my shirt; I used a
colossal palm leaf,
in order to wipe invincible stains of crimson betel; I
used stringent
antiseptic,
in order to wipe agglutinated paint from the wall; I
used a blend of water and
salt,
in order to wipe tonnes of sawdust from the pellucid
glass; I used a fluffy
brush of handsome cotton,
in order to wipe sumptuous grape vine from the
barrel; I used my tongue,
in order to wipe oleaginous grease from live grass; I
used micro thin bristles
of brush,
in order to wipe disdainful sewage from earth; I used a
pair of dry twigs to
incinerate,
in order to wipe saline tears from her eyes; I used my
strong palm,
in order to wipe immaculate chalk from the
blackboard, I used a rosewood
duster,
in order to wipe incongruous thorns from the mystical
grave; I used a forked
pickaxe,
in order to wipe blood oozing profusely from my
wounds; I used a concoction of
whisky and sponge,
in order to wipe erroneous blunders in
pronunciation; I used the dictionary,
in order to wipe mascara from her dainty eyes; I used
my luscious red lips,
in order to wipe my bowels clean of debris; I used a
well spun sanitary towel,
in order to wipe brackish footprints of my triangular
feet; I used soft
detergent,
in order to wipe flakes of white powder from my scalp;
i vociferously used an
extract of medieval roots,
in order to wipe venomous poison from her cheek; I
articulately used my teeth
and withdrew,
in order to wipe moisture from sequestered interiors
of my home; I made use of
fumigating sunlight,
and in order to wipe the heinous sins I committed this
existing life; I took
birth for infinite decades,
harnessing the void created with my precious blood

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
