Untenable Freefall

I look to the left
and my stomach collapses

Officials in Cali
(experts in their chosen fields
no doubt)
warn passengers
on rollercoasters
not to scream
or gasp
whilst spinning round

Sounds like a perfectly
reasonable request
espoused with purely
rational intentions

You sit there
with your damn mouth shut
and enjoy their ride
shoved down your throat
without a peep

These people
lost their wits
a long time ago

but it’s our own fault
for allowing them to screw with us
past the point of absurdity
