"Washing the Shopping" by John Kefala Kerr

Kefala-Kerr, John (2021) "Washing the Shopping" by John Kefala Kerr. [Composition]

Item Type: Composition

While there may be sound preventative reasons for 'washing the shopping', the action itself induces some anxiety, as well as a degree of therapeutic relief. Humour arises too in contemplating the prevalence of what, under normal circumstances, would be considered the exclusive domain of the obsessive compulsive.
