periods of rest ended abruptly.
can’t breathe.

head swollen.
filled with bricks. too heavy.
mouth parched.
throat stinging. 
feeling dizzy.
stomach queasy. 
can’t think. 
no time to be sick.
eyes won’t open.
sentences won’t form.
craving giving everything up
in exchange for my bed.
ears ringing.
thirst unquenching.
echinacea tea.
lime and garlic in my salad.
ginger and cinnamon tea. 
warm shower.
