2008 September 13 poem: COUGH


and cough and cough and cough. Take some
cough syrup, stop coughing for a while, eat supper, then
cough, and cough and cough and cough. Wasn't this the way
pneumonia started last time - shortness of breath and
coughing? Well there was fever
too; I don't have a fever. Cough cough cough. Anyway I have
asked for some more
cough syrup and am remembering
calm. Between coughs I can just about
recall what it was like.
