Warned Away

stomach_flu

this lassitude exists within a
contraband of gastric anarchy
an illness rent with lèse
majesté praised ostensibly
as commutations brave – as
vague and vaporous out of
date defenestrations to a
stranger’s obtuse views

you know you have to eat to
shit to save your liquid life from
weak demise, and risk a spewing
death surmised as rule of thumb –
gastric flu you’ve wont to say,
as if to warn the World away
