now that school is out

and i’m away from my classroom filled with littles

for some reason

my immune system has taken it upon itself

to also go on break, relax, and let down its guard

 welcoming in a variety of ailments all at once

the good doctors have well-armed me with reinforcements

 only a matter of time and rest before I win the battle once more

onward.

(I said from my bed wrapped in my sherpa blanket)

 

“i’m in a quandary. if I wash my hands before i eat fries, it’s healthy, right? but if i don’t wash my hands, I’m slowly building up my immune system. what to do, what to do…”
