Wikipedia Poem, No. 210

worm-worm-01

“comparable to a worm / under a high heel / and not to a teacup / on a turning table” Ghérasim Luca

 

ones mouth medicates
from the anterior portion
like a buds branch

distorted with albuterol
and alpha lipoic acid
a cause for terminal taste

zinc supplements alter
the patients therapeutic process
a complete lack of causes

with albuterol and zinc
a distinct lack of saliva
up to ones neck in pilocarpine

chorda tympani built then by taste
cells cooperate with posterior portions
of short-term container synapses

a single mouthful composed
on the permanence of a cavity
thin shapes on the back of the tongue
