Angelo Verga


Sounds hurt and I’m allergic to light;
The pain is wholly on the offended side.
At random I get an abrupt stab
Lasting 5-7 strident minutes.
When I eat spongy whole wheat sliced
The top of my head yeasts, and I sneeze.
Whenever I miss my train or home stop
I get a long throb above my eyebrows.
Speaking of a thrust felt in the eyes
At times my sinuses expand and dry.
Once when my head was hurting awfully bad
I scanned my balls; they’d shriveled, they had.
