*** [untitled ten]

mr nothing examined his body
the poet made him aware of
his constantly bleeding nose
hypersensitivity to sunlight
and allergy to dairy products
even forced him to visit the loo
with all the petty physiology
not befitting a lyrical character

there was nothing derogatory
about this new accent per se
however it made mr nothing
a little uncomfortable at times
maybe even embarrassed
when in respectable company
debating the intricacies of renga
he had to face indigestion
