ILL

I am sick today.

Shingles

Ghastly pox.

Blisters and bumps, oozing, crusty bits

down my neck, over my right shoulder, across my chest.

There is a deep ache behind the ooze, sharp on its arrival.

The drugs are good, healing the nerves, urging me to sleep,

so, I shall sleep off this plague, like all others,

and shall rise again to fight (or something) another day.

***  get the vaccine…you do NOT want this…
