To Wring a Poem From My Gut


open mouth

To wring a poem from my gut,

there’s nothing like infuriation,

with acid reflux burning,

comes a verbal deviation.


My words seethe from every crack,

I say only in a sarcophagus,

would you be able to silence,

this woman’s throbbing esophagus.


Wrenching impotence,

in the face of calamity,

give me a Pepcid Ac

of God’s magnanimity.
