Enthroned. A poem (and a dedication).

Commissioned at the hearth
Creation at both ends

Poetry of motions
Movements and quotients

Seated and relieved
The uncanny mind projects
And words flow on

Moreso than the waterfall
Or waste disposal

Until the final act is done

And the seeds of doubt
Are flushed


You may not have guessed (or maybe you did), but this light-hearted poem is about me writing poems on the loo (oooh, how fourth wall of me). A most productive time that I would be remiss not to write about.

It’s dedicated to Victo Dolore, a doctor/writer who has an amazing blog about her doctoring (in a good way), her love for her kids and life in general. She has a wonderful ‘thoughts from the throne’ column every Thursday, where she literally blogs from her toilet.

Here’s to you, Victo. Great minds think alike (or is it great bums?). If you haven’t checked out Ms Dolore’s blog, do yourself a favour and click here.

Iโ€™m a writer who loves tabletop role playing games, poetry and (you guessed it) writing. Occasionally I have something to say...

  1. LMAO! Love this. It appeals to the 14 year-old boy inside my woman’s soul–and no, that doesn’t mean I’m non-binary, etc. Just that I have a wicked sense of humor–especially where toilet humor is concerned. Thanks for a good belly-laugh!

    1. No problem. I used to write lots more amusing stuff, but I’ve tended to be a little too serious over the last few months. If you like a laugh you might want to read my answers to my award questions (just click on the award category) ๐Ÿ™‚
