the tap runs
there’s music
waves of sounds on radio
and sinks

flush the toilet
once

let the cistern fill.
flush again

this is the first step

draw the curtains
switch lights off

the tap runs
non-stop

keep it running

you do not let nikki upset you
not the time
increase the volume

speakers are god

you need two.

sit

legs apart
breathe
inhale
exhale
well done
perfect pilates

toilet seats
and corpses
shootings and
accident scenes
and talks of cold

just. sit.

always use your left hand
the right is God’s

the socket is on
this shall be called
vibration therapy

the tap runs
there’s music
waves of sounds on radio
and sinks
and hands

start

shit
