The Men’s Room – Vishal Dutia

Don’t smile

Don’t frown

Don’t turn around

Don’t make eye contact

Don’t wink

Don’t blink

Don’t even think About where you are at

Don’t say hey

Don’t wave

Don’t small talk make Stare straight at the wall

Don’t clear your throat

Call someone bro

Or make a joke Of

okay now please cough

You’re a man

Wash your hands Though that’s not in the plan

Dry them on your pants

Walk to the door As you ignore All else but the floor

Don’t even think of looking back

I am a Social Worker by day and an artist/writer by night. I use the written word in an attempt to make sense of the secret worlds and dysfunctional dynamics that lurk beneath the facades of our daily interactions. I am not sure how my writing styles are characterized, nor am I overly concerned about it. I am immensely enthusiastic about music and often connect better with songs than I do people. I also have an intense appreciation for quality wines and whiskies, frequently consuming them in excess. I like things that smell good and struggle to manage the symptoms of a life-long relationship with depression. So, why "grumpygorman"? Spend some time here and find out...
