Larry Jones

It was sitting
by the side of the road.

I felt a connection to the
old broken down toilet,
standard white ceramic type.

I tried to take some pictures
with my cell phone.

When I got home
I looked at what I’d snapped.

No piece of junk toilet,

but several extreme close ups
of my hairy nose
and ancient squinty brown eyes.

Same shit.

  4. m lewis redford

    very funny; very gentle; very clean; very grey and white with a hint of sepia thrown in with the ‘ancient eyes’; excellent – I would love it wholly but for the very last line

  5. Donkey forward to humor us.
