The urine stench in the flower garden
The leech sucking on the bare supermodel thigh
The onion floating in the cocoa puffs bowl
The flower growing out of the urinal cake
The leach pond parted by sexy gesticulations
The cereal prize hidden under the onion peel
The expected, the unexpected, the unlikely, the likely
The mixed and the mixer
–––––––––––––All congregate in bad luck water
–––––––––––––––––––––––To spiral down rash-marked porcelain
––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––Into some repulsive paradise.
