On Being Whole


Itchy eyes
Scratchy throat
Pills lined up on the counter
Zinc, Vitamin C, echinacea
Ibuprofin in the super-saver size.
Benadryl, to stop the itching and
Make me sleepy.

Trying to beat a cold.
Wage a war while I sleep.
Wake up and be whole.
I always said,
I’d be whole again someday.
