BIG BROWN WIPE
(2/8/12)


we sometimes
speak
sometimes
write
in sloppily
uncoordinated
manners

like a poop
pinched off
prematurely
a misarticulated
sentiment
can become
a messy affair

no amount
of post editing
toilet paper
can completely
clean
certain clumsy
literary
expulsions

we can
only smear
the words around
to thin the damage
and hope
that the stench
doesn't linger
too long

as this
is beginning
to stink
now
