ORIGINAL POETRY


      Graphomania             A. J. Heskett 


It was going around.
   Onomatodiarrhea-personicramps.

I'd been inoculated, of course,
   shot full of similiserum.

Images of bloated words tearing my intestinal tract
   filled my mind. I was metaphorbic.

I begged my thesaurus for help lest I catch "it".
   In the end, a metonymical-ostomy gave me relief.


A.J. Heskett 82
