La Toilette - by Vera

So I figured out why
there's a one-holer out back.

My indoor toilet clogged on day II.

When I went outside to find roots

grappling with the pipe
emerging from
my cabin,
I backed away.

One thing I know is camping.

Compost toilets are easy.
Throw a little scrub and dirt
on top of your ahems
and voila -
very little stink.

The outhouse hasn't been used in decades,
dry as coprolite.

So the only thing upset
by my new process
is Grandfather Lizard
who lives below the hole.

Nasty shock for him this afternoon,
after that can of refried beans
got through me.
