only poets piss in sinks*. -by maria t.

“Τον επέκρινα- και τούτο είχα πει στα ίσια και µετά δεν µου µίλαγε. Ήταν τεµπέλης. Ήταν από πλούσια οικογένεια και ζούσε µια ζωή µε το χαρτζιλίκι της µαµάς του και των αδελφών του για να είναι απερίσπαστος και να γράφει ποίηση. Μα είναι δυνατόν, επειδή είσαι ποιητής, να τεµπελιάζεις και να τρέχεις µε τις πιτσιρίκες;”

-Ντίνος Χριστιανόπουλος, για τον Οδυσσέα Ελύτη.

  4. it is a cold seattle nite
    – i cant be bothered to get out of bed
    and go all the way to the toilet
    i tell her

    – its only out thru the kitchen
    she tells me

    – if im at home i just open the window
    and piss into the back yard
    she lifts her head from the pillow
    and holds me with her dark eyes

    – really? she says
    my ex-boyfriend would never
    do a thing like that

    – no? i ask
    – no he was very fastidious
    and would never piss out of a window
    – i dont allways piss out of windows
    i correct her
    – sometimes i piss in the sink instead

    she looks at me
    – well he certanly wouldnt do that either
    she says
    – why not?
    i ask
    – he just wasnt raised that way
    she says levelly
    – well nor was i
    – then why do you do it?
    i think for a second
    – becouse im a poet!
    i ansewer
    then laugh into the pillow
