#NaPoWriMo | Day 4 | Bathrooms

when the mind’s a mess,
tear glands are in an overdrive
or you need a me-to-me pep talk
bathrooms are spaces of solace

when you wanna adore a new dress
feel beautiful while combing hair
or sexy as you caress your breast
bathrooms are spaces of solace

when after a long day at work
grime falls off your face in shower
and meets the blood on the floor
bathrooms are spaces of solace

to poop and pee in peace
bathrooms are spaces of solace

maybe they mean so much
because you know how hard it is
to find a clean, even clean-ish one
where you won’t feel like you would
puke, get UTI or suffer an assault
for letting bladder lose, to feel done

and there is always a sinking feeling
that you are lucky to have access at all
to be able to dream of the comforts at home
or walk in, without stares, into a mall’s stall

bathrooms are space of solace
just not all, not for all
