acute gasteroantritus with uri: resistance is futile


i was a fool to think india would let me escape without casting one final curse upon my insides.

a ch.chill.ill to the core convinced my conciousness to cover up as
the clock clicked. clicked. clicked.
[! make it stop MAKE IT STOOOOOOP !] the click.lick.icking.
if i had any energy i'd pull it from the wall
and with each tick a turning and shaking
and with each click a burning and baking
and with each. blick. the fall.

you are controlled so cold so continue to cover up and pile on the blankets
no need to worry while your thoughts are blurry
i'm taking [care of] EVERYthing.

and i believed the lie for hours. sh.sh[ache]ing sh.shuddering sh.shivering.
inside me a fist clamped down upon and twisted slowly
beaten down and weary a wearing down this past week
eaten down and eyes teary a tearing down passed out and weak

but i woke up from the haze alone in the daze finally and took control
removing the blankets that were blurring my thoughts and boiling my blood.
clawing my way out. of. the. hole.
awake from the ache.

Paul, I know you're straight edge, but this sounds to me like a really bad trip.
