Modern Day
Toilet Reading

It was refreshing
to see Dostoyevsky
staring back at me
in that dirty,
but lemon scented
bathroom.

In bygone days
I would
have called you
a filthy fuck if
I’d found a book
in your bathroom –
whilst
simultaneously
knowing
that deep down,
I couldn’t
be friends
witah anyone
who didn’t toilet read.

Nowadays it just
felt incredible
to find another place
where books were
still being
read.
