           poop

    i, am a stool.
a feesies.
    ...of the b i o l o g i c a l persuasion
i sit here.  in the bottom of your toilet.
    your stool.  the abyss.
    ...i am lonely.
    i am hurt.
WHY DIDN'T YOU FLUSH ME?
    thanks for a soggy paper blanket - but!...
    i want to be flushed.


FART


a fart passes.
i speculate...       
     he is lonely.
no one heard him
NO ONE EVEN SMELLED HIM.
    un-ease-z-ness settles.
i'm discontent with this passing.

why did no one smelll meeeeee?

i am hurt. i am a fart... for christ's sake!!!





   toe jaM
   
 I AM A JAM...no, not music's passionate
     orgasm.
        i am found on the bottom fledger of a
    massive skin fast.
  i am converged  and  sheltered in the
         toe of a nail.
         A NAIL OF A TOE.
      TOE OF A NAIL.
              i am just being.....  ...here.
      not making waves, but faves for the mind....
