Mama Washes Clothes In The Ukraine

The community washing machine is now in her guest bedroom. Neighborhoods sons, suddenly turned hardcore, man hardware, as they keep a diligent watch all day! They work shifts and feast on barbecue ribs. The mothers, one by one, bring in their loads. A seventeen year old, drops his meal. It is his mama's turn. His eyes, like daggers, pierce the room. She knows it, and does her laundry in peace.
