Whenever I Flush

Whenever I Flush

A Poem by V.L.Mir

Enjoyment. Just one flush away.

Whenever I flush,
    the room is filled
    with gaiety and mirth
    just like Christmas; yet

Whenever I flush,
    tears come gushing in
    cause a part of me
    will never come back again

Whenever I flush,
    the belly contraction
    with a plopping sound
    gives me satisfaction

Whenever I flush,
    the water circulates
    just like hurricane
    as it goes down a hole

Whenever I flush,
    It is there I realize
    that the best joy in life
    are given free

These things I feel, and
These things I see...
     ...whenever I flush...
           ...whenever I flush.

Okay, so OF COURSE the title made me choose this one to look at first :-) Very unique. I especially liked the line " tears come gushing in/cause a part of me/will never come back again." It reminded me of a class I took for my Psychology degree where we learned that children actually fear this very thing quite often and how that impacts a child's process of "potty training." I like the imagery as well as the auditory cues in this as well. Nice job.
