Inspiration comes!
Tension built, keyboard ready.
Huh, it’s just a fart.

As it comes, it goes,
in an explosive burst…we’re
glad it’s not a shart.

Best when fermented,

The jungle rumbles;
molten lava rivers run —
Giardia reigns.
Inspiration flushes down
grey and white matter with brown.

Great things comes harder
you’d think it’ll never get better
Don’t squeeze
It’ll ease
Just be sure there’s paper

I’m in the zone when — ugh! — the stench
cuts to the bone. I have to clench,
which makes me groan. I dig a trench (more to follow)

to set the tone. I use a wrench.
Let it be known that I’m no wench,
it’s land I own that I now quench.

Night
sky
eye strain
constricted
irises clenching
taut like sphincters
obscuring views of Uranus.

@babablue
I clenched my jaw, I stomped my feet,
I clenched my fist and stuffed my tweet,

@tamyka 13h

@babablue (continued)
I clenched my sphincter nice and tight
and fell asleep. To all, goodnight.
