The New Toilet

Toto two

I listened to an architect one day,
who lectured, if we want to take the road
to smart design and use, then come what may,
we have to give first place to the commode.
“For we can cook outside, or get a meal
with money, but when stomachs are upset
we need our toilets. Squat or stand or kneel,
the throne’s the head and center. Don’t forget.”

Four years ago, I watched a man install
a brand new Toto toilet, to upgrade
the quality of plumbing in my small
abode. But it went wrong when it was made;
it crapped out intermittently. I had
that sorry shit replaced, and now I’m glad.
