The blatant exposure of internal organs by Luigi Marchini

The blatant exposure of internal organs

Trapped between machine
and couch, he lies still;
the field holds no pull
as he is moved forward
into black and the noise begins.

He believes he can feel
a laser scarring red flowers onto/into
his stomach to the beat
of the sounds; a precise incision
until he is open, hot.
It does not hurt.
A whoosh of particles,
alpha and beta, announce themselves
by ghosting through the fundus
and anterior wall before swimming
in the gastric canal, ignoring the dam.

Home now, he vomits, bleeds
yellow rose – like petals
and, finally, pulls out a thud of hair.

  1. Great title. Dramatic. Scary. Cool ending. It’s got a Sci Fi feel like where someone is trapped in a spaceship with something very dangerous … like the Alien flicks …
