for many years
I have wondered
how one could put
a pair of socks
into the dryer
yet
only one sock
would emerge
at the end
of the drying cycle

this

I
must
        admit

has perplexed me
for some time

there have been rumors

of sock gobbling monsters
and the all too common
“roommate sock thievery”

along with
some varied excuses
such as haunted houses
and
old
people
memory
problems

but alas

nothing
has been discovered
as far as proof
to validate
these outlandish claims

a great deal of research
some call “sock studies”
has been done
over the years
with
      no
          real
                clear
                        data
available to
the general public

Many people
from different
“walks of life”
have given their all
in numerous attempts
to find the answer
to the burning question
of the LOST SOCK DILEMMA

My hope is that
someone out there
will find the solution
to this mystery

but to be completely h
                                     o
                                     n
                                     e
                                     s
                                     t

I do fear it could be
a MONSTER
eating my socks though

I say this due to the fact
that every time the drying cycle finishes
instead of hearing a buzz

well

I hear a growl instead

(and I have 17 mismatched socks...just sayin' )
