Transparent shower curtains

Transparent shower curtains


So I saw the girls talking
About the some “eating disorders treatment center”
Where the shower curtains are transparent
So the “staff” can watch while young,
Vulnerable, starved patients bathe.

I suppose this is beauty.

Please, staff, stare more closely
So that way, you may determine
Which water comes from the spigot
And which are our tears.

Cry aloud, my people.
Let your voices
Like the trumpets of Joshua
Burst open the locked doors.
I am listening.
