originally posted as “drip” on a discussion on gogyohka junction, it merits being labeled as gross:
i lean my head
to the other side
and the dam of mucous
to free a new nostril
feel free to respond with your own gogyohka, a meter-less, rhyme-less, five-line form more crisply summarized on the front page of the junction, about your recent or past or future nasal drip experiences. the raw nostrils, the sore throat, the gurgling cough. it’s always the cold season, so let it out before you have to blow it out on a tissue.
