If you prefer to leave
the laundromat through the back door,

which is always open during business hours,

you may.

Conversely, if you prefer to enter through said back
door and leave through the front, you may, as well.

Or, go in the same way you came in, thus avoiding
the novelty, terra incognita, and need for innovation

of egress unlike the ingress, and general

new-world disorder perhaps worse
than the bundle of hot fabric in your straining bag

that will spill into a shambled heap
when you reverse it to open onto the floor or bed,

yielding one avenue of escape unlike the 'mat—
but enough for small chaos, which is your clean choice
