Dear Grandma,

No one

wants to know

about the state

of your

bowels.

Please save

your colourful tales

of abdominal distress

for your medical advisors.

Elimination is

NEVER

appropriate

dinner table

conversation.

(You’d think this was common sense, wouldn’t you?)

The skinny old lady,

grey hair twisted into a bun,

leathery skin, artfully wrinkled,

roars around her yard

in her bikini top,

mowing in the rain.
