What Does It Mean?


For allergies as is routine
I took an antihistamine
I got groggy then I fell asleep

As I lay there tossing turning
In my skull, cerebrum churning
I was dreaming, I was cleaning my teeth

First I'm brushing then I'm flossing
All the while turning tossing
Broken floss pestering my cheek

The broken strand begins to squirm
The floss has turned into a worm
Gasping grows into a gargled scream

I tug at it and tear off bits
In my dream I cough and spit
Corners of my mouth are dripping green

I gag out the last bits of gore
Parts writhe together on the floor
Slop and slime are slithering toward me

Gathered goop now forms an eel
I smash it hard with my bare heel
Then I wake because I have to pee

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
