when i was four years old
my favorite breakfast cereal was raisin bran,
smothered under "two scoops" of refined white sugar.
hyper-regularity -
one time when i was running a fever
my mommy ran me to the hospital.
doctor and nurses crowded around the gurney
on which i lay face down naked,
and they shoved a thermometer up my ass.
an interesting sensation
not altogether unpleasant,
i shit on them.
one of the nurses fetched napkins and latex gloves
to remove each individual turd
that emerged from my intruded upon asshole
while my mother watched,
face blanched with embarrassment.


i wasn't embarrassed.

i was bored.
