Abject - Poem by Wayne Taam

Monday afternoon I wake up
take a piss and suddenly
experience what alcoholics
call a defining moment
of clarity

I see you in shorts swaggering
your fat ass in slippers
for a bite
And I wonder why
I almost threw it all away

For all my search for
answers during our nearness
our naked embraces
and passionate kisses in
classy lifts
I think it is extremely
That I see the
truth of the matter
that defining scene
so clear in my head
in a toilet
