All poems untitled except for “Irritant.”

 

Infectious shopping,

Touching each and every aisle,

Eyeballs red from spree.

***

Broken hour hand,

Minutes working,

Face it,

Time goes on.

***

Subordination,

In a submarine,

Is borderline,

Insubordination,

In a broader,

Line of instances,

With ordinary marines.

***

The open

Gate was

Close to

Breaking

Wind

***

Irritant

“Irritant,”

The word for which I’ve been searching,

Elbow pinned to the ribs,

Arm bent,

Hand hooked,

Tickle down my throat – reach,

Full extension, full definition,

No sensations of nausea,

Anger or frustration are naught,

No flare ups from below,

Listening is painful, full of panic,

I brace and am braced,

The prognosis fiendishly provides and describes my intestinal chains.
