    Bravo, Vicky. This poem hit me right in the gut. I grew up with the remnants of a mangle in an overgrown back garden (yes I am that old ūüôā ) I love this scene of an aged couple doing laundry and yearning for their youth. I am choosing this poem for ‘Editors Daily Picks’ because it is just that good. Thank you for sharing it here.

    ‘Paine as a pencil sharpened by a knife’ – that’s a great image/simile. This is a very poignant and moving write, told with creativity
