Bath Time - Poem by Andy Brookes

Stubbing my toe on the door frame
I utter a unrepeatable soliloquy.

I reach the telephone just as it cuts off
another round of expletives.

number unknown it reads
which means a cold call.

more grim mutterings
as I drip suds on the carpet.

angry, I pull out the telephone jack
returning to my swiftly cooling bath
add more hot water and sink into oblivion.
