It’s why you start itching if you haven’t showered in a few days—

They put all these chemicals in the soap and shampoo, addicting the body so it keeps coming back for more.

Only another fix can scratch it.

Conditioners and lotions.

The irony goes around in circles like, because we work, we get all sweaty, convinced bacteria’s doing this, causing the itch, that yucky-all-over feeling.

So we use our bodies to make money, afford sterility.

The same with clothes—dirty from work, buy detergent, do a load.

We work to pay electric bills so alarm clocks wake us up for work.

If soap’s so clean, the fuck’s up with scum?
