I work hard for our little family - my feet ache
like nothing else.
My tarsals are spreading to help my body maintain.
Someone told me once
that maybe my body is in a constant fight or flight state.
That's life, or mine anyways.
So, this morning before the moon gave way,
I woke up and made you
hot salt water to gargle because you're sick.
You gagged. I heard you,
but you did it anyways.
