The Fourth Stall - Poem by Amberlee Carter

The serenity prayer and a Shakespeare sonnet
appear on the bathroom wall,
stalls heavily sodden with urine-
Who cleans these public restrooms anyway?
a Spanish lady named Maria,
all Spanish women bear this name-
She cleans them no doubt, so well
the bleach leaves stains.

I thought about leaving behind
a few words of my own, maybe
a hope psalm-
But ya know,
being in the presence of a memory
I'm seeing through a stranger's eyes,
has made me do something I never do....
I miss you
