things that made us famous, but you’re still nobody

poetry

all too many people
shy away from the topic of poo
out of fear of offending
their mothers reading
their works when they finally
publish their own book
someday

the sieve can address it all
from rape to cannibalism
when we want to say pants
we say trousers

if i say trunk, i mean both
the ass of the car
and a garment to cover your ass
whilst you swim

i have boldly gone where you
have not
the deep has never challenged me

hover, and hold
squatting will keep you from having
to squeeze

but dont fall in
or you’ll become famous
you nobody.

  1. I can’t believe I missed this. I guess I was out of town. The second stanza is my favorite. I would nominate “when we want to say pants we say trousers” as a title for a future book. What a beautiful sentence. To quote a certain poet, “well done.”
