That sound we make when noses itch inside.
We breathe in deeply, shut eyes, noses hide.
The squeal, "AH CHOO!" sounding like loud trains.
"Bless you," and "Thank you," our friends and we say.

My life’s a sneeze, caught

My life’s a sneeze, caught
Between fruition and these
Cyclic thoughts of ought,
Should, and “Why,
what a terrible thing am I?!”

How come when it is I sneeze

How come when it is I sneeze

I holler out " ACHOO! "

Like the people in the vicinity

Need some sort of clue

Of exactly what is going on

And what it is that they should do

Turning wide eyed in my direction

And exclaiming " God Bless You "

Covered my mouth when I sneeze,

Don’t leave me please.
You are planning to leave in your 50’s
But could you stay a few years longer?
For me?
If I asked really nicely,
Covered my mouth when I sneeze,
If we held hands throughout dinner,
Would you promise not to leave?

i've dedicated a
hundred poems
because you left
a sort of permanence
on my skin, have you
written about me since

(c) Brooke Otto

we all wonder if they did.

just bored tired and uninspired
maybe i'll become a liar
pretend i'm a tire
or runaway to join a band of thieves

for now i'll stick to sucking at bottles
and hope for answers at the bottoms
breathing in the smell of autumn
and try to forget it's just rotting leaves

Can spare you a sneeze

Two buds of garlic
Ginger in tea
Can't do the trick
Can't produce poetry.

Can spare you a sneeze
I'm done with too many
When blows the breeze
When it's rainy.

Where springs the fountain
Flowing ceaseless thru nose
Once sneeze sneeze again
Don't feel so morose.

It's the day to be dumb
Better if you resign
When nose is red numb
Can't pen a one line.

Through sun and the rain
It's time tested old
Once sneeze sneeze again
Lo no remedy for cold.

Gingered tea cup
Can't kill the enemy
It's time to wrap up
Close the shop for poetry.

I sneeze...

A gentle breeze blows
through your window
the smell of spring fills the air,
I sneeze...

I kiss the nape of your neck
and inhale
your sweet perfume,
I sneeze...

Your cat jumps up on my lap
begging to be petted,
I sneeze...

We undress and climb into bed
our naked bodies press together;
where the dog usually sleeps,
I sneeze.

You are beautiful and I want you
but I fear my dear
I am allergic to your world,

Sometimes desire just isn't enough without some form of medication.- From Poetry Jam (on Toast)
If I sneeze again

Like a mini orgasm
It surprises you
without warning
One, two, three, four
If I sneeze again
I'll surely die.

This morning
as i was washing you off my face
i realized something.

i was thinking about everything
everything we ever said to each other
every thing we've done
or haven't done
since mid-december
and i stumbled upon the startling fact
that the variable i have been allowing
to dictate my happiness for almost three solid months
is not 6'0,
2 inches tall.

that our torpid relationship
which was mostly just
(considering it was always sometime after
was just this little piece of dust
i'd gotten up my nose
that tickled for a bit.

i don't mean to be rude
but as my mother used to say
to a particularly
stubborn loose tooth
a young, wiggly thing
that was causing more pain
than it was worth:
