Back Next Good Humor

Without therapy
without a word spoken
the kundalini raised itself
right throughout his whole body
and with all that energy
ready to pour itself out
he bought a steel spike
and a sledge hammer
and went where the floors
were made from cement
and hammered away
day in
and day out
until he came to the corroded pipes
to stop the water from seeping through.
and then went home
to bathe and supper
and afterwards he sung himself to bed
with good humor.
