women, men, children
dogs, cats, and pigs
a pig in a poke
an essence that causes
the gums to pink up
scientists and nuns have it
gang members, tap dancers
swing to the rhythm of the glug-glug sound
and the essence moves their bodies
and their brains
see sights unsought.
Madness is no remedy
nor is goodness or evil
When the razor severs the jugular
the sight shuts off
the brain freezes
the glug-glug halts.
