Daily Contemplation

I recently read a survey that said
most people do their best thinking
in the bathroom

Of course, I'm assuming
that they're referring to contemplating
on the john
which stands to reason, that any
deep, perceptive notions
we might form therein,
are left floating, irretrievable,
in the sacrificial bowl,
which I don't think we'd want
to preserve for future reference,
so, instead, we're reduced to
merely capturing the main essence
in a daily log--
let nothing go to waste...

ah, what better place to form
such solid, cohesive thoughts
