A Public Restroom - Poem by Steve Gripp

A hydrosphere of maritime malaise
on the counter; wasted bloody gauze from some
street war - waterlubed faucets.
The funk, the stench, ensconced in mildew around
bricklayered walls. A mechanical prison, temporary and sound.
Do I need to be reminded of my childhood? Shitstains on the
tile - a hygenic atrocity.

    Well, I can say you've definately painted a very clear picture for us.....not the most attractive one but I can see 'beautiful' isn't the word you were going for right? It kinda makes me cringe. Nice work. Sincerely, Mary (Report) Reply
