These Stalls

A strange comfort.

Jesse Yelin on

Here we are once again.

With my red-faced countenance
and tear filled eyes.
(I am growing tired of this blurry vision)

As I find myself in this stall,
once again,
I must admit:
this bathroom I have
found some comfort in.




We don't talk enough about mental health.
