Relief |Jessica Mehta

Us and every mammal on earth takes
twenty seconds to piss. Imagine that,
the great equalizer is between our legs
(of course). It doesn’t matter
how many warm beers we forced down
during bumbling pauses at house parties
we never wanted to attend. If we just
got the trots training for a  pointless race,
or held our bladders tight as a newborn
because the bathroom was too many
steps away (and we so lazy). We’re the same
as baboons, house cats and cattle
being pointed to the slaughter house.
And that toilet paper? Those Turkish toilets?
The bidets, baby wipes and hoses
we swear never touched our asses? Those
don’t make us better than the wild things
hunkered down, embarrassed,
eyes averted in the fields.
