I saw a table online
that belongs in the vacant spot
of the downstairs bathroom
that we demo’d 7 weeks
ago & freed it of black porcelain
sinks and watercloset.
Dull flat, glossless finished
Vanities now serve the garage
Workshop, storing tools for repair & destruction.
Walls stand naked awaiting
Dressings of semi-gloss wipeable
paint. “Adrift” chip
chosen, a calming hue of sky
against the beach tiled walls.
Concrete floor awaits a shave
From carpet glue and glazed paint.
Pedastool sink stands unemployed,
The sewer pipe, 3 feet perpendicular
Stuffed with rags to gag
Down gas. (It will be trimmed and secured
To a new porcelain throne).
But I saw a table online that belongs
In the vacant spot of the downstairs bathroom.
