The Toilet

The Toilet sucked and sucked,
Sucked so hard it drew blood,
Sucked and sucked so strong and long
It sucked itself in a rattle
Flush down itself –

But not before HIS bottom
Had been torn off,
The flesh stripped searing from the bone
In a bloodied mass of foam and guts
Spewed into the heart of the bowl.

The toilet sucked and sucked,
And with a screech and a squelch
He disappeared,
Sucked ’till his eye-teeth
Dropped out
And then his skull
And then

All gone.

Who was he?

Some say he was a madman,
Verging on the edge of genius,
Too strong for the world,
This world,
Let it slip,
His reality tore into this other reality
And won.

Christ, I hope not,
For there but for the grace of God –



Imagine if the only thing that makes our world real is us holding it together with our minds …


Supposing that one day your imagination was so intense that you imagined yourself into a nightmare world …

I’ve read this several and still have little to no idea what is going on. Something about a toilet and a skull, that’s all I know.

Okay, imagine that reality is only created by us. It’s a figment of our mind. Suppose someone is a bit insane and has a nightmare view of the world. At some stage they lose the plot and can no longer ‘hold it together’. Their insanity wins. Their nightmare view of the world becomes reality.

OMG!!Totally awesome! I love the way you have used your imagination and sucked it all up together to create this cool poem. I really love the “but sucking” thing…. If you make another one try and make it a little bit more scary.
