abandon ship [poem]

The thought sneaks in as I’m washing the dishes. 

I’m lost in my head as the suds caress my fingers before slowly swirling down the drain. 

I long to follow it down and vanish from reality. 

In the background I hear the raised voices

I hear the twisted words.

Escape is all I can think of

It’s all that I need

Two words circle around, spinning around

So fast that I almost capsize

Abandon ship
