A Love Poem for the Wien Basement Bathroom

Staff Writer Reyna Choi confesses her unexpected love-at-first-glance for the Wein basement bathroom.


I met you during NSOP, but just by a glance

I was looking for mail – I passed you by chance.


I thought, hey –

maybe you’re someone I’ll need someday.


We didn’t see each other for a while.

There was no reason to.

Until one day, I was picking up some packages

and I thought of you.


You were just what I needed

after three glasses of orange juice.

With even a sign outside

to tell others you’re in use.


Upon your item shelf of vacant opportunity

I placed my mail

Then went into the singular stall

(which also locked)

for two layers

of privacy.


After my relief

I used your perfectly-sized sink

Picked up my packages and left

Thinking of more orange juice to drink.


We see each other every now and then

Especially on the weekends

When I have to swipe

people in

for eight hours

at the desk.


I dream of visiting you on my lunch breaks

You enable my orange juice addiction by relieving my aches

O Wien Basement Bathroom,

Forgive my mistakes.
