WHAT'S IT LIKE,
HAVING AN M-R-I?
Describing my MRI experience yesterday . . .
they slide your body into the slender opening
of this massive machine (with inches to spare),
ask you to remain still for 30-minutes,
and warn you that it's a "noisy experience."
OK, I've got a better explanation . . .
it's like pushing a plump green bean
into a soda straw that's too thin,
and setting off firecrackers and machine gun fire,
while you do your best to "remain still."
I get the results of my MRI pictures later today.
