The Bathroom

The Bathroom

A Poem by Einstein Noodle

The Bathroom

closing locked doors with
secrets bounding off papered walls
 
sound proof

ostentation not allowed but
its a comfortable space
like cozy jackets

mirror of sponges.
self absorbing timbers for
moots long imprisoned 

nine inch grey and steel
prisms of pride
secret service protected

more iron clad dowries
password redundancy 
stuck                           

like Walmart greetings

tap tap his cigarettes 
he packs tight and
lights it 
to lip

now why haven't I thought of writing about it? not in a poem though. you did that pretty well.
people won't openly talk about it but it certainly is the favoured retreat of many. mine at any rate. that's where I make important decisions like getting married or deciding to have kids.
good to read you again, E.

Mans last sanctuary. The humble throne where major decisions are made. Should i back the favourite, or go for the outsider. My god, another politician bites the dust. Ah well, flush them all away.

It is strangely an under reported place of retreat, haven, contemplation and haven. You portray it in an expressive flowing piece of free verse.

Its not the bathroom its what you do in it. Oops did I just say that out loud?
Always make sure I have a bath occasionally instead of a shower just to ruminate. Although its easier getting in the shower. And I do have to bail all the hooch out of there with a small cup beforehand. Oops did it again didn't I? No hooch or liquid of anykind in there other than water, honest!
Wit personified and points well made, I tell you. I really enjoy your work.

The first time I read this I did not catch onto the humor until I started playing the music video. HAHA I went into hysterical laughter because of personal experiences in the bathroom I can relate to. It reminds me of my hectic home life where it is hard to find private areas; the restroom was ideal. I even have a floating desk for the bathtub so I can write, read, and sketch while listening to the music. Honestly, I could probably just live in there because I spend at least 30 minutes to an hour every evening. My boyfriend teases me because he has caught me eating in there along with having wine. There is a reason why my feet are so prunes now. :P I have also took bathroom breaks during work where I would read for 15 minutes on the toilet.

Overall, this is my ramble for the day. Thank you for sharing this fun and lighthearted poem!

sincerely,
ria

After veiwing your video and reading your bathroom story it makes sense. Minutes pass opportunities can be claimed or lost. Why not treat this time as constructive time for thoght, contemplation, etc. After all who is going anywhere at least for awhile. Really clever poem! Blessings. kathy
