I Need An Enema For My Mind


I need to purge all the words
that constipate my brain,
get all backed-up thoughts
loose and flowing again,

mental fibre to move the great thought
that somehow I just forgot,
a pill that will raise instead of lower
the pressure that gives my brain its power.

I need to know how to unglue
the knots of words I did not chew,
an exercise to stretch the phrase
that’s been digesting for days and days.

My body seems so easy to heal
but my mind,
my mind is a whole different deal.
