Colonic irrigation, well, is it like watering punctuation? Diluting the meaning by allowing the words to all run on -- shit! I must remove the hose, such cleansing seems counter-productive to me. Dots and spots and diacritical marks all play their part in writing. Scribbles scrawled while still in awe of natural phenomena are messy.

You're braver than me, Rose. I had no intention of touching the um, substance of Sio piece. :)

        Strong and sturdy hands
Yet gold fish slips away the 100th time
.    Ant in his plate feels stronger

 Defined shape, firm consistency
 yet distorted at core, lacking normalcy
 the fibroid bleeds in envy

A coal train to the rhythm of Coltraine
a hundred cars, a hundred bars
even the tracks depress

When I die
I'm closing my
eyes,
so I won't
see my death
approaching.



Is this a senryu?
