Was anyone looking when I fell through my brain,
fell out of the bottom and down my throat
into my stomach?
Did anyone help when I tried to climb back up
and away from the swirling quagmire
but fell back down?
Will anyone know that I am still here standing,
stuck on the perimeter shelf of my stomach
and trying my best not
to lose my
Trying not to get sucked back
