when the cork pops

Sometimes--
Words jam,
inexplicably,
stuck, as in
a bottleneck,
pressure building,
demanding release,
uncomfortably--
But, thankfully,
something always
comes along
to relieve
the pressure--
Ah, hallelujah!
Like a fountain,
words explode
,
foaming over,
splashing,
sloshing
everywhere,
making a mess
of epic
proportions--
Until you're sick
of yourself.

Laurie asked the Real Toads to ruminate on the topic of bottlenecks.
