Ayaz Daryl Nielsen- Three Poems

between funerals 
a stiff drink

a leaf lands 
on my hair                                                           
what my roots have seen

message on Cafe Luna's toilet
             (with additions)                          

Please don’t flush:
tampons, <your career> pads, diapers,
paper towels, underwear,
cups, <your integrity>  <plants> trash,
<computers> <dignity>
<hope>  <dreams>  <love>
only T. P.  peet poo.
<flush your greed>
thank you.
<fear is ok>
