Poetry Play #56

Samuel Oluwatobi Olatunji and Torera


You thought you would find flies

Making malodorous melody into ears

But what you met was simply a ceramic whiteness

As if the toilet was God’s dwelling place


Welcoming white seat like a couch

Soft enough to sink into

White tiled walls that welcomed you into their cool embrace


You closed your eyes to fill your body with the fragrance of the toilet

Forgetting the reason you came there

You wished the toilet could become a white blanket

Which you could wrap around you


It’s a multipurpose serving friend

A get-away from morning devotion

House chores


A place to cry

Or to laugh

It doesn’t discriminate

Gender or race


There, you were like a caged bird set free in a white-white sky

You allowed your hands to walk the white walls

Ecstasy engulfed you, and you almost began to moan…


Sex in the toilet

Sex with the toilet

Sex in the toilet with the toilet

Its walls drowned out the sounds coming in

Your mind could soar

Your thoughts could leave their prison


How you wished you can carry this toilet everywhere you go

Like a tortoise carrying its tortoiseshell

And as you kept dreaming

A fart knocked on your head

And you became conscious of your purpose


It’d been an hour already

You dragged yourself back to reality

To the real reason the toilet was created


You opened the lid of the Water Closet

And sat on it like a king on a throne

Then you poured a part of you into its white, watery mouth

As an offering to the gods below

NB: Poetry Play, a product of Artilogue in partnership with PenAStory, is a game in form of poetic dialogue for every poet on BBM. It is a game of two poets: one drops a line or more, and the other replies, flowing along until one of them gives up, or the poem gets too long. Every poem formed from this game will be published here (penastory.com) every Friday and Saturday. So poets, are you ready to play? If yes, contact Samuel via BBM: 7baa55ae
