EXORCIST: PART 2

you never see

the aftermath of an

exorcism – just the

ruddy happy family so

relieved the spirit’s gone but

 

what about the ribs that

banged against the ceiling or the

joints that took a beating from

contorting like a crab the

 

spine must a be a mess with

crushed up crumbled vertebrae

from the head’s violent

spinning like a

dreidel on speed the

 

spleen is likely

ruptured from haphazard

levitation and the

brain bounced and

bruised a ping pong

in the skull – and then

 

there’s the mental side from

acting like a jerk a

long list of sorrys and

amends the soul

 

could use some soothing

to coax it back in place to

recover from the

houseguest that

was literally

from hell – of course

 

all this jazz is as seen on

TV – but demons don’t

restrict themselves to

fiction.

JOE: a bumble bee poem

beware of bees sign
bees

I felt bad – for a moment – to

watch the bee twitch to

see his two front legs

flail crazed on his

back jacked

from the cup

I had smushed

through his middle I

 

felt bad – for an instant – as

I crushed his bee head

with a rock – that

 

buddha stuff

says not to

kill things & I

shall very well go

to hell but it was

such a human

reaction when his

fuzzy bee bottom

grazed my

lip as I took a

sip of coffee & then

 

glanced in the

cup to see

the bee

so gleeful

& merry

as he

tainted the

last drop

of joe.
