changing the diet has amazing results–
why, just the simplest substitutions make all the difference!
Take, for example, my
foregoing my usual brekkie of
panick-cakes & agghhhs!!!
I chose surreal—a new one—instead,
and sure I made the cakes
but I let them congeal,
standing on teetering tippy toe to grab a
and yeah, I fell a couple of times reaching in that cabinet,
but at least I wasn’t running from precedent.
After a fulfilling bowl
of nutty bits of faith, and O shaped hope
I pollinated my Arrowhead with
bee-leaf—and maybe that’s sorta New Age
but what the hey.
It’s less lethal that way, and
the chia seeds I’d tried before had only served to make my rhetoric
visibly wild and woolly, and all health benefits aside—
Then for lunch, well lunch,
I untwisted the corkscrew pasta that was my gut
and tried bandages
~lots and lots of bandages~
to stop that infernal bleeding,
washing it all down with a dose
of blood thinners
–trying to lighten up, you know, and be the light
that was dim some.
then for dinner,
it was Lamb.
Of course it was Lamb, and a side of
crucifix-erous veggies, ‘cause I know which side my
bread is buttered on
and maybe this sounds irreverent, but I’m
not changing for You.
