Random Effect

After showering, I
Put on clean underpants
And found one of
Her socks inside them.
Chance, yes, a random
Effect of tumble-dry,
Yet, after forty-one
Years, it still
Makes me happy.


  1. I love it! It reminds me of wonderful intimate relationships I have had (not as long as yours or my parents') but still... Redolent and immediately satisfying (both your poem and the experience).

    Now, i find that I've included some of my canine companion' Jasper's toys or togs and am delighted when they come out from the dryer unexpectedly....

  2. Thanks Will! Hello Jasper (take good care of my friend)!


Please, say hello! I welcome your comments, thoughts, even criticisms!
