Sick Day

Strange lures tug at idled hands:
a broken hourglass spilling sands,
Days long past, comfortable years,
The ones you’ve loved embalmed by tears,
Cold air twisting through the throat,
the mockingbird hitting a single note,
All of this, and what’s more
That paper-cut feeling of a nose gone sore.
