I just joined Narrative and this was my first opportunity to read a Poem of the week. What a pleasant poem for my introduction. It's the kind of poem one can print out and carry around for a week to read again and again and grow in its simplicity and uniqueness. Thank you.
Peter Pereira's poem, much like the fabled pickled peck or soldiers' tales regarding fate's fickle face, relieves the inveterate intern of invert terminology while he/she interminably observes, through service, the body. The tongue-twisting language, while laudably baudy, reminds us how incisive the poem is.
