Thoughts while ill and not ill with mystery virus

Living in a soup

Daily survival

Minimal activity

No motivation to do more

Strange illness

Mystery virus

Late afternoon

in bed

too tired to sleep

Staring at

brick wall


whiteness of some bricks

the pattern they make

Not motivated by hunger

Not wanting to cook

Lack of respect for the body

Betrayal of the body

Unreliability of the body

Living in limbo

Nothing much matters

Everyday life holds no interest

Real life dulled

By a sickness that seems almost imaginary

If I think hard enough

If I just try harder

Surely it will go away

Yet it drags on with no real focus

And I am not

What I want to be
