Midnight Heartburn

Dean Traylor is a freelance writer and teacher who writes about various subjects, including education and creative writing.


Stomach burns

Gas churns!

Pings of pain

In the night, it doesn’t wane.

Was it the processed meat

Or too much wheat?

All I know

This discomfort will grow.

That damn food, so cheap

Robs me of sleep.
