TAINTED TUBE
(2/24/14)


I've been
examined

poked

probed

prodded

palpitated

x-rayed

and now
I'm being
scanned

my pain
is primarily
an inconvenience
so I wonder
at the long term
usefulness
of all this
diagnostic
futility

it exhausts
me

so much so
that I don't
really regret
leaving a fart
behind
in the MRI
contraption

they'll need
more
than an alcohol
wipe
for that
