Sick Sweat


...arms heavy and slow
...feet dragging and flat
...a head full of stuffing
...a sick sweat
...in the late spring humidity
...lungs shut off and full of webs
...wheezing and coughing
...waves of warm buzz
...the silence breaks with screeching
...the dim begins to glow
...tossing and turning til two
...Sandy lake days
...they'll ride anything
...laughing and getting soaked
...happy days are here again
