spin cycle – #SoCS

old news
used to be a “thing”
we’d say

I guess we still do,
only now it just means
yesterday.

The news cycle spins
faster than my Maytag
squeezing
rinse water
from my fresh-smelling
clothes

which will stink tomorrow.

wash, rinse, repeat.

the new old
is making me dizzy
and I want to get off
this ride.


#SoCS

The prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “new/old.” Use either or both of the words “new and old” any way you’d like. Bonus points for starting and ending with either one.
