Dry Skin

She said her hands feel dry when folding clothes.
He countered smoothing paper irks his skin.
For me a theory quickly then arose –
committed as they are to scrubbing well
when in or out their fingers they expose,
and then applying lotion for repair,
perhaps the sanitizing that they chose
depletes them of good moisture from within.
Immoderately clean means dermal woes.
