Eruption

Eruption
Copyright 2008, Jim Penny
Word count: 43

World spinning away
From me; fumbling, aimless,
Knees hitting the deck.
Coughing, strangling, bile
Staining the planks beneath me.
Unanswered prayer,
Productive heaving
Cleans my belly; lumps, froth, smell
Disgust those watching.
Rising, stumbling on,
Steaming leavings wafting still;
I am better now.
