Good writing, with a strong point and with life oozing out.

cold

April 21, 2015

it seems like you’re just having a bad day
there isn’t enough coffee to wake up
every bump a grievous injury
every slight a huge offense
every disappointment a catastrophe

soldiering on for awhile, pushing through
before it dawns on you
the light dim, but visible:
you are sick
you have a cold

all of your experiences get sorted through
this new theory of everything
each item checking off the list
a depressing conclusion that explains everything
and how you’ll be living in a fog for three days
