At-Home Ink Blot Test

You ever done the at-home ink blot test?,
he asks.


What’s that?,
I say.


You know, the at home ink blot test:
where each time you take a dump
you wipe in different ways
(different durations, directions, angles etc.)
then look down at the toilet paper smear
and try to say what
it looks like.


You’re fucked up,
I say,
I think we should see other people.


You make us sound like two fags,
he says.


That’s the least of your worries, pal.


Why?,
he asks.


I shake my head
finish my beer
get up
and leave.


Outside
I walk three blocks
north.


To buy paper plates
and plastic utensils
for the party
in my head.
