Cleaning Mary

By author

A light spray of Dettox covered Mary’s upper lip as the sweet maid followed her morning routine.

I am coming to wash you, the Carer announced

I hope they won’t spray my entire body with Dettox,Mary thought anxiously.It does not kill the virus

What about the backless night gown?

It sounds provocative But it is not.. Made of plastic it dries rapidly but it stops air drying your skin.

Why don’t they ask if you want to be washed?

The care is impersonal, You are merely an old person.They want a photo but not for sentimental reasons Just first safety with pills etc

At least they don’t sexually abuse us, we pray.

My organs have shrunk into my body I can’t see them myself.It is how they feel

And so cry all of us
