An intricate silver teapot dramatically pouring a stream of water against a pitch-black background

The Dishrag

by Alexandra Morozov

. . .

The dishrag sits on the counter

Catching no one’s eye

Many won’t care and ignore it

Casually passing it by

It works so hard, and yet

It’s not even hung to dry

. . .

It polishes the teapot

Who sits on the shelf, proud and tall

But that’s only thanks to the dishrag

Who sits on the counter, limp and small

. . .

(2014)

This is a continuation of Connie’s poem “The Dish Rag” from the radio drama Adventures in Odyssey.
