Hurting

A whole week. Barely. 

My feet take me around

but I forget why. 

Mouth’s been to the dentist.

Hands don’t read my head. 

Ears ring the telephone. 

Moon’s knocked to one side

and I choke in fluids. 
Eventually, they tell me,

The yelling quiets down

inside, but it takes

a while. It takes a while.
