Sprague Preschool II

Meanwhile
I am in the bathroom
and the toilet
is spitting at me

so hard

I’m surer
than any feeling
I’ve ever had
that if I don’t leave
this instant, the toilet

will eat me.

The only time
I have felt anything like this
I was running
up the basement stairs
and still swear I felt the spidery
fingers of ghost
on my ankles, so sad
and pulling.
