An Ode to a Suicide Shower


Oh jury-rigged gadget of comfort and death, cleaneth my body but don't taketh my breath…


I come from the spoiled American world where we have water heaters we ignore,
but here there are none whether you're rich or you're poor…

And if this be the day you short-circuit and I'm fried, under your wet stream I'll have nowhere to hide.
And if I am to go out like this, in the shower like a punk…
I ask that you at least start the voltage slow so I can cover my junk…

Oh god that looks precarious as it is! As funny (and beautifully written) this ode was, I can't help but want to cringe... I'd rather boil a huge tub of water and then slowly pour it over my head as an alternative to showering..
