Sick and Rendered Horizontal

September 2nd, 2016

Horizontal
I have become the
resident ghoust
as of late. Haunting
couches and comfy
cushions, emiting
painful sounds at
too-loud noises and
too-strong smells.

Such is the paradox
of being sick.

Here I am, pulled
down to earth
with all of its
glorious aches and
pains and bruises,
but my earthly
dwelling is singular,
individual. To the
rest of the world
I have slipped away
from their concerns
by virtue of less
than stellar functioning
and stomach pains
that render me horizontal.
