Flu

Nasty flu,

hammers in my head.

She scratches at my throat

and throbs in my ears.

Dizzying my thoughts with

threats of ills to come.

.

Settles painlessly in my larynx.

Voice box filled with unfamiliar speechlessness.

A reminder perhaps

of too many oral barbs.

 .

Laryngitis;

a prompt to speak kinder.
