TWO GUYS WHO AREN'T GAY COMING OUT OF THE SINGLE UNIT BATHROOM TOGETHER

Folder: 
PAST POMES

 

I hadda wait

to use the men’s room

I stood there patiently

until two guys come out

I was a little perplexed

I knew both guys

and knew that

neither of them was gay

“I’m not asking any questions.”

is all I said

as they walked past me

I went into the bathroom

and didn’t smell the aroma

of cannabis or tobacco

I surmised that they were

most likely doing lines

of either coke or meth

but I wasn’t taking any chances

I didn’t touch anything

while I was in there

I pissed without lifting the seat

and I left the bathroom

without washing my hands
