Juan The Pool Boy

*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

the compressor

humming,  the propofol was dripping.


My alter ego

Concetta, the towel girl,

also twenty-four,

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 erupted,

in search of polyps

and other strange outgrowths.
