OK, I think I understand. Looking back at what you posted originally...

location / {
     post_action /post;

location = /post {
     proxy_pass http://my_upstream_servers;

That would in fact do what I wanted, correct?

Also there was little information on what the keyword internal does if you happened to have any info that would be helpful.  Thanks again!
