Graffiti

~

In public bathrooms,

      The washing machines,

 

We find here the fossils

      Where Others have been:

 

The instants of imprints

      From some human scene;

 

Shards of the nonce when

      Some human scene

 

Were once things,

      but now brings

Straits of extreme.

 

The relics of Once Things –

      What does it mean?

 

Nothing unbidden

      Must needs be unseen,

 

On the walls of the stalls,

      Of cleaning machines.
