lather, rinse, repeat

i stared at the label
on the shampoo bottle
and noticed the edge
peeling off
and i couldn’t help it –
i picked at the corner.
i had hoped it would release
in one easy piece
but it’s never simple to
let go.
glue sticks and love binds
and though i’ve yearned
so often to remove you
you’re still there,
adhering to even the
slickest of surfaces.
