persona john grata

they call me porcelain 
throne, head 
(of what, pray tell?), 
latrine
powder room 
crapper 
loo. 

but(t), you
know what? 
it’s time to shut 
your potty 
mouth. 

truth is, 
i’m tanked. 
plumb
(-ing) stuck. 

wiped 
out. 

i’m not just 
your
comfort station. 

this is a dirty job, 
really, the pits. 
#1: your aim’s to blame. 
#2: it stinks! you just sit 
and i do all the 
work. 

i think: let’s trade places, 
yes? i’m guessing 
you’re not up to snuff 
(what with the paper
-work and all that stuff), 
but(t)

i await 
your demonstration. 

in fact,
you might say i’m flush 
with anticipation. 

PAD Challenge, day 9.

      Oh, goodness, yes! I started with the title “persona non grata” as my persona poem…then realized I had already titled TWO poems that in the past. So then I played around with alternate titles until I came up with this one. Then it just about wrote itself, all flush with excitement. 😉

        Ha.. I keep doing the same..writing and poem and then discovering I have one or two by the same name.. not to mention continually finding poems I have no memory of having written.
