Inside my dryer
A mystic portal exists
Where socks go to die.
I put the socks in
But they always come back out
Minus their match’d pair.
On the other side
A gnarled beast licks his coarse lips.
“Socks for lunch again??!!”

You are SO GOOD AT THESE!!!! I find it highly ironic that I JUST finished folding the laundry… and yep. You guessed it. I have a gnarled beast in my dryer like YOU. Apparently it’s what’s for dinner too. 🙂
I love the playful tone!
That explains so much, 🙂
It does, doesn’t it?!
Socks for lunch? Hahaha! Brilliant! I’ll never look at dryers the same way again 🙂
I knew there was something sinister about dryers. The beast.
That’s what it is!!
hehehe What a great, fun read! Too many socks lost to dryers. Now I’ll be calling it the dryer monster instead. 🙂
He’s in there. You know it. I know it. And now the world…
I am convinced that all dryers are connected to a wormhole. LOL
I’m pretty sure they are.
Only a “gnarled beast” could be so cruel to matched pairs. And in meter. Nicely done.
Yes this is true! Oh so true!
We have a huge basket on top of our dryer filled to the brim with one sock. Now I know where to look for the match! Fun post for your prompt!
I don’t know if you want them back…
Liv, great take on the prompt! Really enjoyed it!
Thank you Joe!
🙂 Loved it!
So clever! Love this! I’ve always wondered where those socks go.
The more you know!
That’s really the only explanation for it. Forget the kids socks, which disappear in droves – by ones. It’s my favorite smartwool sock. Still missing after all these years.
Awww. Sorry hon. It’s always the good ones that are taken too soon.
Funny…probably because it’s so true (ever found one inside your pants leg?—hilarious!!) jodie
Yes I have! And stuck to the underside of my fitted sheets.
Enjoyed reading, fun take!
Haha..!! That was pretty much fun to read 🙂
Thank you! It was a lot of fun to write!
