IN THE TOILET

I wish I had a pocket in my flesh. I would put your picture in it and take it to the grave with me.
I wonder if the grave will be as narrow as this toilet?
I don’t deserve the earth. The earth will get dirty if they bury my filthy body in it. They must burn me. It is not my suicide that killed me but the story of deceit left behind, really. The story of a stained name, a stained life.
