In every cycle,
the hum is constant.
Circling the top loader,
a warm load purged with every pump
of the agitator,
and every pump of the agitator.
Transposed by the clutch crank,
to the whirr of the counterweight
in the bottom of the basin.
Clean, cleaner, the sound
becoming the silence,
beneath the buzz of fluorescent bulbs.
