Another Question

bucket-spigot


hey, I have to suffer it
every day, the same
things you define as
expressions of normality
rest in places sacred to 


me; the bathroom is not
a great venue for such
reminders – body butter
and restorative crèmes
don’t add much to my 


perspective. I am less
impressed with calls to
vanity which never
eventuate than a clean 


and Spartan washcloth
draped tastefully over
a spigot.
Yes, I meant the tap, but 
that’s another question...
