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.
