Where is Yo Rupture?

Jan 7, 2019 | Curbside Consults

Pressure down there.

Inside wants out.

Bulges eventually break through.

It was Andy told me about this one.

Saw man with an aneurysm

die waiting in a parked car.

He saw it happening up close

I from afar

and now, we see you

with bulging membranes

and ballooning arteries

snaking from one year into the next.

On the other side

pressure eases below the mesh,

below screens of thickening skin.

And never one needs to ask

Where is Yo rupture?
