WALLPAPER
(2/17/10)


standing
at the urinal

you cannot
look down
or you are
a pervert

you cannot
look around
or you are
a fag

I stare
straight ahead
to fool
everyone
and consider
what is in front
of me

strange
partial prints
of serious dudes
working printing presses
and other plates
of their apparent
efforts

much Latin
illustrations
and curlicues
all on faux
antique paper

apparently
I work
in one
classy
office building

I recognize
some
of the text
but being no scholar
I finish
flush
zip up
and leave

Ave Maria
gratia plena
