Bouncing That Gut Feeling



   viscera wound tighter
   than the tightest rubber ball
   never mind bouncing off the walls
   guts like a pinball machine
   an arcade between the ears
   with tilt alarms screaming

I feel the anguish. Although short and snappy, the reader senses that this is a frequent, irrational, unsolicited and tortuous emotion that the writer experiences. I liketh.
