Penance: March 5, 2011 - Lobotomy

Prompt: Write about a medical procedure.

Source: None

Response: Lobotomy

it's slow going
the slippery work
of hook and
nose and
brain matter
it's delicate maneuvering
the tug of doctor and
tribesman and
politician and
to wheedle
the frontal lobe
down through
the tiny channel
of mucus nasal cavity
into the crater of
the brain-catching-bowl
and then
it's gentle settling
the squelching wheeze
of brain in
bowl in
professional hands.
