FECAL MATTERS
(3/18/10)


I stood up
turned around
and looked
in the water
after I wiped
and finished
my business

(oh
come on
I am not
the only
one)

two remnants
were evident

one
piece of brown
sunk down
while the other
floated about
the surface
near
the soiled
toilet paper

strange

they came out
at the same
time

were exactly
the same hue
so apparently
of similar
substance

why did each
have
such a different
destination?

I am
perplexed

I should
be working
but I am typing
about poop

maybe
a peanut
was involved

maybe some
unresolved
celery

maybe
the result
was simply
yin and yang
expressed
in excrement

my shit
certainly seems
to speak
to me

my head
a repository
for all
that is waste
surely
listens
