Humming A Tune*~by Constancio Sulapas Asumen Jr



CDVIII ~> Humming A Tune*

CDVIII ~> Humming A Tune*
(Opus408 ~> Exotic Exuberance)
Your date with the anesthesiologist
Proves to be too one-sided an affair.
Putting you under justifies the tryst;
With any device fitting and proper,
Per your consent on a piece of paper:
Your role is to sign on the dotted line
Not to malign their explicit design!
When all goes well, you get the I.C.U.–
Intensive Care Unit, to make it clear;
If things go wrong, off to the morgue you go
Where you are given protection and care
Until retrieved by your registered heir:
It is your job to regain consciousness
By any device that warrants success!
Humming a tune before they flush the fluid
Into your veins, helps seduce the romance
Of sweet surrender, cushions with languid
Splendor of exotic exuberance;
Drowns the in-between in irrelevance:
The procedure went well, and it’s a wrap;
If you are humming the tune, waking up!
