Haiku. In a Toilet. In Brazil.
There is an independent bookshop in Brazil that I had not heard of till last weekend. It is called Boto-cor-de-rosa (it translates as 'Pink Dolphin', apparently) and they are currently running a crowdfunding campaign in order to stay afloat. One of the rewards on offer was to have a poem of your choice on the chalkboard in what they call their 'bathroom', but which I assume is their toilet.
I coughed up to get one of the haiku from Weightless Fireworks in there. They have just sent me a photo of the result.
I do hope they have nice soft toilet paper in there. And a warm seat.
Anyway, if you want to find out more about the bookshop, their crowdfunding page is here.
