in charge of retardation

Psychiatry 2: Student Daze – Poem 29


the room is all women
dumpy and thick
short and spherical

oversized and swollen
dilantin gums
that hold no teeth

me with thirty women

the moment the evening meal
is finished
all thirty of them
are disrobing

their clothes flung
through the dining-room window
to the ground outside

I am surrounded
by a wriggling
grotesque
fleshy tableau

and no conception
of what I am meant to do next

or
where I should look
