The Yellow River

I appreciate the poetry of Richard Brautigan quite a bit and was probably reading it when I wrote this poem.

The Yellow River

Disoriented by Vietnamese beer,
I enter the hot zone
Approximately four inches
South of my intended
Insertion point
And am repelled
By an aggressive
Guerilla resistance.

War is hell.
