Tuesday's Picture

Tuesday’s Picture: Nasal Strips

The buzz of the fan,

the hum of the air-cleaner

plays in the night

as the two of us sleep,

each with a nose strip

stuck to the bridge

opening up nostrils,

enabling the air flow

to pass through our bristly sinuses.

But the snoring

never stops, it aggravates:

snorting, gasping, gurgling

like two warthogs

being raucous

in the moonlight.

  1. Warthogs? Hah.. first time I’ve seen that word in poetry. Nice. 😉 Never a dull moment with you, Mark! 🙂

    Have you ever seen the commercial about Snore Abuse? It’s hilarious and yet I felt like slapping the one who came up with it lol. Smiling at the poem.
