BEST SEAT IN THE HOUSE



IN THE PRIVY

You sit upon the holey chair within your solitary lair.
There is no haven half so sweet as this, your favorite retreat.
All is pardoned in this room where notions hover like perfume
until you find you’ve cleared your mind, left your encumbrances behind.
After a refreshing purge, don’t be too hasty to emerge.
Before rejoining life’s mad rush, please, drown your troubles with a flush.
(Mike Cohen – 2003)
