I worry when someone goes into the hospital
Kidneys shutting down
Liver shutting down
We don’t know why

may never know whywhywhywhywhy
haven’t we had enough of this already

once the dying starts, it doesn’t stop

Clogged arteries are blocked lifelines
legs becoming starved for oxygen
good news
he has periphery veins
and leg pains
bad news
if they are cut off, there will oxygen galore
in the form of gaping wounds
exposure and air restored

haven’t we had enough of this already
all the stops have been removed
let us commence with the dying

A hollowness

and an aching promise

of pain yet to come

 

If my temperature

runs lower than average

and then increases to the average temperature

this means I have fever

this means I am ill

this means I am ailing

 

Clammy hands are often

heated by a hot head

 

A hollowness

and an aching promise

of pain to come

SOB with me
