I got seven swords today
and my body is covered in large red welts.
My lips are swollen
My hands are swollen
My feet are swollen
Everything hurts.
This is a reaction to medicine
designed to kill
everything.
Even me, it would seem.
This is my body rejecting a temporary solution
to a deeper problem.
Which has bubbled up to the surface
with such fierceness and physicality
I’m left uncertain
As to whether anything will
ever
be
okay
again.
