know the feeling?


ride inside

mean washing machine

soiled, soaped, and spun out.


roll into

round hay baler

tightly wound, rightly wrapped.


pass through

giant rotisserie oven

toasted ’til broasted, go round ’til browned.


lie under

road steam roller

laid flat in tar, rode on too far.



Linking with dVerse Poets where we try to convey an emotion through things…

    Wow! Sounds like you are totally wiped out! “You have been through the mill,” so to speak!

    Sounds like it’s been a rough day, lol! Things being combined, pressed, washed and molded into one unit. Hope the pressure has let off
