(sore throat)

Sore throat
bungley head.
Clarity has left
my life.
It seems I might
bump into doorways,
slither off chairs
in a comatose collapse.
But that is only
at the farther back
Up front I am
making soup,
with celery for cleansing,
carrots for color,
red lentils to bring
me back to where
I need to be.
