Kerri Shying R # 239 - Dr Morrison's Blemish Plaster


Dr Morrison’s Blemish Plaster

the poor in their theme park
running lab rats  owned by you

in heaven you get a king single
bed  with a cross-stitched sampler

above it   says  ‘suffered in silence’
worth the humiliation  take hold of the

thin skin of your quick  that onion pale
membrane right below the nail  now pull

don’t  dare cry

  4. Dear Kerri, that is another terrific poem.
    Suffered in silence. Lord. Lord. Better pain is quick.
