Poem 286 Grand Central Stomach – & This Week’s Many Literary Events!

Grand Central Stomach

my stomach is grand central station
trains of worry or elation or exhaustion or fear or joy
zipping in & out – steam screaming up into my lung ceiling
fuel dripping deep into my gutty rail lines

loco – motion of today’s to-dos & the conductor is on break
stepped onto cloud nine on the last flight out off the V line
oh goodness! the whistle’s a blowin’!
root those feet, travellers! Step steady!
we’ll get there.

we’ll get there.
