Stall
unknown

Pulling down my pants,
 1
I sat on the toilet seat
 2
in my usual fashion.
 3
This morning was different—
 4
a small sticker
 5
stuck there on my thigh.
 6
 
 
Looking down at it,
 7
I smiled,
 8
remembering the little guy
 9
who put it there.
 10
“Something to ‘member me by,
 11
Momma”.
 12
 
 
Like I could ever forget you.

Sweet. I'm not sure about the opening three lines tho - 'usual fashion'? I have only figured out one way, but I am a routine kind of gal and when I find something that works I stick to it;) The sentiment is wonderful.

interesting juxtapostion of visuals and momma-thought: sitting on the toilet is very like a squat, a common birthing position in some countries

also, the idea of releasing something from inside -- well ... i'll stop there

good ... very good
 — Bloodfetish

 — FrayedSkirt
