Loose the Measure

How many times have I washed
the dishes; unlimited water
abrasive absent time
decorated with music?

How many times will a rocking switch
reached, tangle with sparkles;
aluminum
down the drain?

How many times will granite stack
orderly, only for rapid removal
and a timeless loop
that lasts our length?

The answer is many times unbroken,
unlimited, orderly,
decorated, and
often absent.
