Bathroom Break

 

He goes when the feeling hits
and has consecutive moments of peace and quiet.

He shuts the door,
and is alone with himself.
I try not to keep score,
but I can’t help myself.

The door never shuts for me.
It is a group project
with plenty of
opinions
and ideas
about my body.

He flushes
and washes
and I’m not exactly sure what.

We pick who flushes
and we all wash
together.

And we come out
together
because the mother and the children that
bathroom together
win the prize
of
togetherness.

But the daddy.
That daddy wins the prize
of a
bathroom break.
