stand in a pyramid like cheerleaders
proud of their mate who’s in the show,
the one on the back bit of the toilet.
I just searched online for its name
and an illustration suggests it’s called the tank.
I was born pretty much the same way
as adults who know words like shut-off-valve
and don’t particularly smile at floor flange.
What do they do when they brush their teeth?
