CONSTIPATION

Pain without utility.
Organic necessity bringing back
Sweet memories of evacuation!

Now it is bolus time,
Cemented continuity,
Costive, reluctant,
Inhibited by coats of paint,
Marooned in anticipation.

The urinating city posts no headlines
As the siege continues,
Forced painful failure
Conjuring images of mutant lust,
Of blind things pushing through the blood of the earth,
Bulbed, reckless, impatient of pain,
Needfully destructive.

Confrontations with absolute need
Abort, continue,
Abort, continue,
At last
Coaxing the serpent head of effort
From a peek to a
Reluctant pause.
Then a cosmic event,
Earthquake oozing,
An all-absorbing thrust,
A slither of disgorgement
Plundering out of the deeper vaults,
Triumphant.

In the cathedrals of applause
The chanting bells
Hosannah the outcome.
The achieved has been achieved!
My grinning cosmos capers
And my joys
Flush the universe.

Author's note: this poem is a souvenir of being trapped in a room for five days with nothing but hospital food to eat. The next time I took along my own raw fruit for fiber.


BREASTFEEDING

This is the warmth that shares,
The fatigue
