Welcome to My New Navel

by Chris Sorrenti

Welcome to my new navel
or no navel at all
depending on how you look at it
at least compared to the one
I was given at birth
a small outsy

And the monstrosity
that developed over the years
a mushroomed hernia
certainly no chick magnet

Only seen one before
on a boss at work
his was no prettier
Mini-Me I jokingly named it
wherever I went
it got there before me

Now all that’s left
is a smooth bump
with line across the middle
where they stitched me up

I got fitted for progressives
picking them up in a couple of weeks
then I’ll be able to retitle this poem

Welcome to the New Me
