“Water should not be used for flushing lavatories.
So says the book.
Quaint, it repeats this advice many times over:
Water is life. Don’t waste it.
Don’t stray outside your inner refuge,
for a second longer than necessary.”
Three poems about civil defence, body odour and childhood bedrooms: “Protect, Survive”, “Sweetscent” and “Grown”. Published in The Fractured Nuance. Purchase a copy here.
