Shit


So I depend on fungus
to wipe the crud away
from my eyes

Toilet paper absorbs
most of my shit
but what about the stains?
the toilet bowl remains
unclean

Everywhere I go
a pile is defrosting
from the melting
snow

Did you think
no one will notice?
eyes wasted
on your laziness
eyes wasted
on your petty display

I can't get my mind off
this fucking smell

Because
we are all dying
because
we are eroding
and we
can't stop lying
how did we
come to this?

We are all orbiting
a pile of shit

drinking by myself; then lifting
