The story of a man.1

The story of a man.

A man walks into a bathroom late one night.
Entering as he does, the story unfolds before us…
Washing hands with warm water,

Washing face with the imperial leather, the gem of the land,
taking a piss, brushing the teeth, and
Shaving!

Shaving!
He filled the well below, and filled his hands in lather
So white… so white…

so, fluffy… so warm.
It cooled to the face though!
Hot water softens the blow.

I rubbed it on me, and cut away the trees on my face.
Fast and hard, brutal and merciless, but
Nobody sees it but you. The pain, the honesty, the loss.
