Sick

Never thought
I could buckle
so quick
my body
overrun
by a virus
slick
made sick
through
contact
with those
with whom
I don’t live
 
I’m humbled
by the
experience
finding this
tiny thing
has such
significance
 
That life
could be
a trip
gone wrong
that I’m
not nearly
as strong
as I thought
in ways that
matter
apparently
a lot
with recovery
so hard-fought
 
I can’t wait
for the snot
to stop
so I can
go on
being
healthy
