MRI= Miserable Resonating Incident

When
I
needed
MRI
I did not know what
I was really getting into.

I
was
confused
thinking it
to be an open
cat-scan like I had once before.

I
was
not at
all prepared
for the length of time, sound
extent of pressured confinement.

When
I
went in
the narrow
MRI machine
I was pinched like a bullet.

I
felt
I could
not breathe or
move. Squeezed and compressed–
such loud noise roared through the chamber.

I
screamed
for help,
“Let me out!”.
Anxiety burst.
The operator kept going.

I
moved
my legs
and howled
for help in panic–
a trapped claustrophobic victim.

When
I
was freed
he said he’d
wanted another
picture and had ignored my pleas.

Since
I
was not
compliant
my pictures might not be
suited for doctor detection.

I
said
like Rhett
Butler I
did not give a damn.
No more chances. No tomorrow.

I
swore
NEVER
would I go
inside a metal
MRI cocoon-coffin now.

My
knees
are some
what better
since the traumatic
event– shocked to not repeat it.

But
the
nightmare
incident
as cannon fodder
remains resonant, still trembles.

My example

On the Road (Form: Fib Series)

When
I
was young
I hitch-hiked
throughout the western
portions of these United States.

It
was
after I
had worked all summer
fighting the region’s forest fires.

It
was
a prelude
to my college days,
and just as educational.
