(Her) Majesty's Colon (Y)
by Connie Boje
In the poem, Her Majesty's Colon(Y), it is at the same time the United States (her fictional colony) and her fictional colon. It makes for a bad combination as taking a bite of it (the colony) it "fights back" (the colon). Other supporting poems are: Momentarily a Mollusk, How Not to Be a Zombie, Vassel (Fief), and Changing of the Guards. It remains up to you to decide how digestible we would be!
