THE DOCTOR’S OFFICE
Bette Davis inhabits Jackie Gleason’s body.
I know this for a fact.
The two of them are alive and well
In the form of my Doctor’s Office Manager.
The big fat mean queen screams:
“Deductible, not now, the doctor’s busy,
no refills, only generic, does your penis
and your balls itch or only your penis”
Drinking coffee in his own special mug
Round brown rings on my medical chart
He is my doctor’s Haldemann and Ehrlichman
A Blond beast to the core.
And I am Vietnam
Blitzed with B-52’s
Strafing my genital jungle
Hairy, raw and red.
