Poem: The Woman With A Live Cockroach In Her Skull 

felt a tingling
crawling in her nostril
a burning in her eyes
when it moved Alive
in there full grown
nestled at the base
of the skull

How did it get in?

reading online keeping
her awake at night

How to get it out?

The experts flummoxed
warn of infection
She wakes screaming
each morning at the news

Can this be true
or just some parable

Don’t you feel it now too
