at the “Beer Olympics”

at the “Beer Olympics”

Celiac Disease

preventing me from
collecting gold at
an epic Olympic
beer drinking
drunk gaming frenzy

fire belly for me
if dare i indulge
in the slightest drip
or sip
of fermented wheat.

gut wrenching
chest klaxons
unwanted air
bubbles gurgling
my intestines’ defeat.

slightly anti-social
but so necessary.

necessity for the rest of me,
the best of me seemingly.

screaming inside!

dreaming of creamy
Kraft Mac n’ Cheese and
Chef Boyardee;
Ramen Noodles,
Wonder bread
And Cookies n’ Cream.
