OSI: 153

payday evening comes crashing

from bars muffled shouts,
articulate cusses thickening up
my organ around the organs,
what pata-biology would call
a conjectured black matter of
memory, a sort of static storm
in the dark cling of the stomach’s
windbreaker. the pliable 1.5mm
permeable shell is a sheen
around the spleen, a high
frequency vibration, meta-cortices
of mental vortices of blame spasming.
its corset-yank is a tummy ache,
real and figurative gut, clenched.
nothing detectible to the left brain’s
diligent peephole. ether’s feather twists.

See all the One Single Impression responses to the prompt.

  1. Such fine phrasing! It’s beginning to seem like peephole examination is the only type there is. :)

  2. Interesting take on the old adage of everyone out to party on payday… filling the barstools, sharing tales.

  3. A biological musical… interesting observations from the sidelines on payday evening at the bar :)

  4. What a descriptive take on the prompt. I feel I’ve travelled through the entire body with this. Nicely done!

  5. I am a stranger to biological terms.. but can make out that you have written it beautifully..well done..

  6. I wonder what would happen if the left brain were less afraid….
