On Writing

Poem 209 – Jingle


an explosive helicopter crash in a vicious snowstorm
brought my waking hours to a thick start – I sat up
quickly in bed, rubbed my eyes into morning

then it started
oh oh oh ozempic!
the commercial jingle for type-2 diabetes meds
banging in my head like a circle of kids
ring-around-the-rosey-ing my brain
oh oh oh ozempic!
oh oh over and over it rattled

oh oh oh when will it crash?
the words exploding like flakes
in a snowstorm?
