Thom Ingram has invented a new poetic form he calls the Tricuahilo, and last night he challenged us to try it on.

Surgery after All

Endoscopy, that was almost end game
on the Friday when we all knew what Monday
would bring—antrectomy—yes, scoping is looking

but -omy means cut—vagotomy—
what did it matter by that point which
parts they took, I was on my way down,
coming back called for good-byes.
