"Bathroom Sink"


Lather
Soap
Blood
Soul


Clam shaped, indented-- by no means a bowl
O the things I drained down my orifice


Paste
Teeth
Waste
Sicks


Icy heaven and hot hell knob summoners
Bookending the spigot of the river Styx

Rings
Promises
Lies
Time

Piping your sins to plant, treated with lime
Until the day the devil comes

Acid
Ammonia
Bleach
Plumbs

Spewing out the deeds I drank
The secret life of a septic tank
