By S.R.A. Markin
the sun has yet to rise
a cold Calgarian day and i sit in angst
my blood warms as the kettle starts
and a fever initiates
i am ready to run
but my legs
my restless legs
the movements are visceral
a beating in my chest
compensates for my lack of actions
headaches, stomach pain, and diarrhea
i leave for school on another day
much like then, and much like tomorrow
i just deal with it
i go on aimlessly
who am i kidding
breathe you son-of-a-bitch
