The washing machine was always working
two, three loads a day
like my fatherís tractors, like our car
the linoleum, the living room couch
worn thin on the edge

When the washing machine broke
it took Dad to fix it
Mom's primary work tool, dependent on him
his work, his emergencies
his willingness
she took it
took the laundry to town
heavy baskets with babies stuffed beside

She allowed no criticism of my father
as her silent anger spread
like a drop of oil through the fabric
and never left my clothes
