Grandma’s Kitchen

Napowrimo small

In Grandma’s kitchen
the scented green slab
snaps from a green and yellow box.

A little lathered baby
walks atop wooden slats,
cleans between taps.

The soaked block of Fairy foam
pops to form honeycomb rings
and forms white, soggy,

fragrant films,
that trickle down
the Belfast sink.
