Poetry 

I’m still not 100% but still doing better.  Dr. came yesterday and soon there will be more appointments.  In the meantime I have time and energy for things I want to do.



I am tired

Of feeling dizzy 

And tired of being tired.

Here’s what comes out

When all I have are

One finger and a brain 

In the middle of a terrible heat wave

In which nothing works
Not the feet or legs or fingers or lips or tongue

But better than watching goat kids die

Or being used and abused by faceless and nameless men

When I was too small to fight back.

So I have a great attitude

(While I prepare for yet another appointment)

Watching my life drain out

Hoping I last until the end of this heat wave

Or at least until we leave for Finland.
