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.

Snake skin,

Stretched thin—



Slid on,

Slipped off—

Rubbish bin.


Rubber sheath,

Dry condom—

Un-used again.


I welcome your Freudian Feedback!
