Attack

I was in a public toilet
when I was attacked by a hair-dryer.
PHOOOOOO!

I had walked past it calmly.
I hadn’t said anything provocative.
I didn’t stare at it.
I didn’t disrespect it
I didn’t say, ‘Look at you stuck on the wall
Nowhere to go, nothing to do
Who are you? Johnny No-mates?’

I did none of these things.

But still it leapt at me
Pumping out hot air:
PHOOOOOO!
Roaring in my face:
PHOOOOOO!
Roughing up my hair:
PHOOOOOO!

I said, Excuse ME!

And it said:
PHOOOOOO!
