The swish and swirl and gurgle
of a flushing girl’s school toliet
she remembers—–
the sludge heaped high
In front 
Of heavy mop
Swirling around in cold urine
Like a latrine of a third world county—
Six year old pushed, shoveled, dumped, cleaned
ALL for a black-lettered-on-red FREE lunch ticket– USA-1953.
