From a Play : Publisher’s Song

Originally published in Breaking Open (1973)

I lie in the bath and I contemplate the toilet-paper:
Scottissue, 1000 sheets—
        What a lot of pissin and shittin
        What a lot of pissin and shittin
Enough for the poems of Shelley and Keats—
All the poems of Shelley and Keats.
