Un-used

I received my first official review from the editor/part-time-comdedian of a small online journal. “A Freudian Smorgasbord,” wrote Miles Wray. I’m guessing it was because of the word snake. I would like to point out that I have made no claim to species of serpent, be it boa or a garter; or too it’s specific size. Hence, the Freudian guilt falls not on me, but on the reader.

Welcome to my brain.

 

Un-used

By Paul Tomes

 

Snake skin,

Stretched thin—

Ultra-ribbed.

 

Slid on,

Slipped off—

Rubbish bin.

 

Rubber sheath,

Dry condom—

Un-used again.

 

I welcome your Freudian Feedback!
