Illness has rolled up to Deer Palace
in heavy equipment.
We have been steamrolled by fever,
jackhammered with sneezing,
had our sinuses excavated and
I think there is some well drilling going on.
Also, I am pretty sure that a beltsander
has been used on my eyeballs.
And, do they put sandpaper in Kleenex?
We have been enduring life rhythms
very acutely these past seven days...
Do you have any cheer to send our way?
Oh, and toss over some zinc lozenges and
eucalyptus, if you please.
