Gummy Bear

Written by: Eddy Ortega

My brain is filled with sticky stuff today
and thoughts will not come out.

Sorry sisters and brothers.
The want is within
and I try to nausea:
I pinch my nose purse my lips
shut tight my eyes and blow fish.

A hint of wit in the silly putty?
Something worth script?

No!
A metaphoric fart judders my cheeks.
Squeezed out is an empty wish 
for metrical structure.

My head is hopeless.
Gummy; bare.

Forgive me Voltaire.

My brain is brim sticky
and I cannot share 
a poem today.
