This Poem Sucks

With one foot over the side
of the tub and the other 
stirring the luke warm water,

my big toe inches towards the
busy drain, both my sins and
accomplishments swirling

to a place I can only imagine
my fish would enjoy and I
wonder if this is the sort of

thing Bukowski meant when
he said that we should reward 
ourselves with a candy-ass poem

now and again.

    Nice us of "candy-ass." The spirit of Bukowski seems to be wafting alongside this piece. Nice work. This Poem Does Not Suck.

    My big toe has to go around the drain to get all those hairs that impede the water's progress down the pipe. This poem doesn't suck; it put a smile on my face.
