First Trimester

First Trimester

It always begins 
like indigestion,
slowly at first, 
then full bore.
Either way,
I need relief.

But no antacid 
can abort a poem
so I have to stop 
and take dictation. 

I’m no Matthew, Mark 
Luke or John.
They wrote the Gospels 
by Divine Inspiration.
I’m on my own. And so
when words cascade

I grab my quill.
I have no choice.
I have to stop
and take dictation.
