The Day my Bladder Took Over

Misc. Heavy Metal lyrics,

The taste of pills in the morning,

Bladder out of water dying

Like a fish, flip and flip, flip and flop,

I hover over the urinal – yellow into white sin.

The sound of the splashing, the up-birth

Of pain, the dream is death – again and again.

The easy ways to say the vomit is venom,

The aging old fact that the snake

No longer bite, no longer hunts

In the long grass, by the long end of the day.

I am wiping the blood from the reins,

Moving the night that keeps me at bay,

The inner breakout of bricks and mortal

And watching it tumble down into my feet,

Keep me still in one place.
