3-7 The Tension…

This happened last Saturday. What can I say?

 

The Tension in Your Bowels

 

At Saturday’s Gathering of Poets

we found seats for “The Tension in your Vowels”

 

and my neighbor squinted, snickered, said

I thought it read “The Tension in Your Bowels”!

 

And I groaned reliving my colon odyssey

through a cocktail haze of

 

Demerol and God knows what else,

submarining through subterranean

 

streams, buoying along until

I surfaced as my neighbor hit

 

my arm with the workshop handout. Strange

how the mind seeks its own level.
