Acid chlorine bleach
between the cleaning lady's hands
she works competently
from stand to sofa
electrostatic attraction
between her hands
she kind of likes this
it's better than emptiness
foam is
between her hands
a man reading fitzgerald behind the table
interfacial tension
bleaching belly

she serves him chloride base instead of
soda water
molecules adrift now
space where time
is rotting
he drinks universal
solvent and it tastes so good

Coolly dispatched. I like the idea of "space where time is rotting".

"chloride base" Gee, a stinging drink.
