I’m tired of this hacking cough

I wish these bugs would bugger off.

It’s hard to breathe; I’m prone to sneeze.

I wish this cough would stop!

Snuffling with fuzzy head,

her frigid feet

in search of heat,

she creeps, shivering between the sheets.

Piled high with fill from sheep and geese

duvets do not suffice to thaw her feet of ice.

As her teeth tremble a timpanic tintannabulation

of unsympathetic vibrations

She seeks cessation of sensation

in the oblivion of sleep.
