The Daily of the University of Washington gives us a glimpse of bathroom stall poetry "unlike any graffiti I've ever seen in a restroom," describes one student. Appropriately, the wall art is in the art building. Examples:

On the brick wall in purple marker: "I met the nicest boy in town, but I want to marry a man."

"I wish I could get an A in Art History." Response, in blue pen: "Maybe you should study."

"I want to be anywhere but here!" Response, in pencil: "You must not have to pee too badly, then."

"I am having an affair with a married man. He just left her for me!" Response: "And he'll prob[ably] leave you for someone else. Once a cheater always a cheater." The response: "Life is not that black and white."

"I love reading this door."
