Dilemma Oddities
by Joanna M. Weston

I tripped over a metaphor
this morning and landed
on a parsed sentence
which switched subjects
and remedied me delusional
with modifiers marching
down and up my nose

pronouns rattled across
my hand causing a twitch
from one side to the other
until I compounded predicates
bent the verbs and heaved
the beast up and over
into a tangle of similes
