Delicious Thunder Sandwich!

I’m thrilled to have a selection of my poems
in the latest Thunder Sandwich! Here is one of my pieces that you will
find in this issue (to read the rest and to check out the other
wonderful contributors, click on the Thunder Sandwich link below):

Your Saprophytic Mind
By Annette Marie Hyder

I can see the thoughts mushroom
behind your boggy eyes.
Your murky vision doesn’t stop
your ideas from proliferating
like the fungus mentioned
that loves the dark
and is given impetus by things that rot.
Your mind holds your toadstools
like a bouquet of dissolution
in its dredgy hands
whiffed after and adored
rooted out like truffles
with your piggy nose
that is always sniffing for more.
