Organ Doner

May 14, 2016




Organ Doner


He found L shaped room

in a fork

on a creaking climb

up a bone

dead tree to snuffle orchids

that can huff their sex

to a pollinator

buzzing its own business

thirty miles away,

just to smell for himself this

aromatic GPS for hairy legged roamers.


Venezuela was quite an orchid expedition

said the anaesthetist

working on beautiful distraction

from the puff of me smoke

arcing towards an A419 kebab van

half a mile away

as his silent colleague

prodded and stemmed,

seemingly mute and devoid of exotic floral anecdotes,

his cauterising skills fizzing beneath

a now you see it, now you don’t, light blue cap.
