Gut Science

Gut Science

By April Hanna

His eyes are like water and it’s all going so fast.
Take two hands,
timeworn.
Is there comedy in the stomach?

Self proclaimed empath,
can make minute rice in fifty seconds.
Bad tipper.
Splits a soul in half and laughs.

In the belly
lies honest corpus.
Take a punch,
Digestion.

Gut science
holds no weight
before judicature,
yet it has moved
victim
atoms
at the speed of
light.
