Please cite all poem references: “Excerpt from ‘Suzie Bitner Was Afraid of the Drain’ by Barbara Vance.” Thank you!
There’s dirt beneath my nails
That comes from my travails.
And though at supper I must clean
The evidence of where I’ve been,
I must say that it seems obscene
To dwell on such details.
