*Inspired by my recent Colonoscopy! I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to Dr. Blachman and the staff at Hudson Valley Gastroenterology. (Special thanks to Dr. Hodorski, the Anesthesiologist).
I had done a “muy bien” job
of prepping. The camera was on standby
humming, the propofol was dripping.
My alter ego
Concetta, the towel girl,
well-proportioned, and very tan, paused by the cave in my dream when Juan arrived sporting his new dive watch with fully charged gas tritium tubes.
Juan and I soon spelunking
through a dark tunnel,
where several sulfurous geysers
had freshly emanated,
in search of polyps
and other strange outgrowths.
