Mr. Raccoon! Mr. Raccoon!
Can't you play with me somehow?
No, I am eating dinner now.

PROMPT: Poetry

To Ms. Lopez, the Lovely, Single School Nurse 
From Dooely, Your Recent Patient 

Nurse, I need medical attention! 

What a holy visitation, 
My angel, made of satin. 
My gluttonous heart eats your visage. 

My gluttonous heart swells. 

Stunned by Cupid’s baton, 
I come for medication, 
Bruised, hungry, damaged: 

Don’t let me perish! 

Your ice pack cannot extinguish 
This burning inflammation. 
Oh! The inferno in my chest! 

This aching heart yearns for stimulation. 

Nurse, I am filled with excitation!
Nurse, I am famished! 
Nurse, I cannot rest. 

RE: To Dooely, my recent patient 
From Mrs. Lopez, the Happily Married School Nurse 

You came to me last week, 
A face colored scarlet, 
And clutching your cotton tee, 
You complained of shortness of breath. 

Other symptoms: 
Fever, 
Heart pangs, 
Sweaty palms, 
Desert dry tongue, 
And horrid theatrical acting. 

Oh, what an endeavor 
For such lust is incurable. 
But the flames in your heart will cease 
If you take the Pepto-Bismol
