- Please run a bath. Add old blood, skin
oil and swab to slick surface, with only
enough light for reflection.
- With busy hands add various cold
objects one by one, such as suit-froth,
scraped earning, enamel, automotive
glass and many poor shoes. Mush.
- In the thickening dark, grope for your
customers with clag grip and wet body.
You need not address them but simply
feed, giving no thought to thinking
- Now for cooking: turn-on all hot
technologies, or with bought permit
quickly crack the earth below the bath
until rising heat bubbles the surface.
- Hand raw steaming lumps over, try to
not splash your gravy. Don't worry, no
body understands the mirror colour.
NOW BE STILL AND RELAX. Like all
baths, this is long-term.
- A few last jacks: check you have
turned-on the pumps, remember
bathrooms are private and that no one
likes rough so leave smooth to go on
backhanding - with trust, with trust,
back to top

Sometimes acerbic, sometimes sweet, and the product of a long process of fermentation,Vinegar will be a home to new poetic forms and concepts.
Vinegar is an online publication for contemporary poetry by emerging visual artists and art writers run by Sheena Colquhoun and Georgia Robenstone.
