Blanca at the Car Wash: 

No need to remain with your vehicle

Come into the office for free coffee, a comfortable chair,

snack machine and clean restroom unless...

She's the girl with extraordinary passion

to catch on camera the bubbly burst

of frothy suds that splash furiously

before your eager eyes;


a playful palette of muted blues, greens, golds...

a weightless, floating fairyland

endless and unreconciled.
