On My Way to the Gurney

Awakened

Sheets of burning coal

 

an aortic tinder box

kidney failure, Cataracts

though Pigs writhe

at foot’s end,

like severed worms

The swelling is foreign

Suppurating fun-house image

Of a well garnered impotence

 

Mistook a pair of scrubs

 

For a savior

 

I’d offer the rest to avoid

their ivory bird

proud of his days

 

grieving baker’s dozen
