Sick day

It´s funny how body and psyche are interconnected

And yet they step in for each other if needed

Like today, when I´m down with a cold,

But my spirits are quite high.

It´s as if they got it

That I can´t do both at once

The being sick and the being sad

that is, so they gave me a break.

 

I´m not sad everyday anymore,

But still I´m grateful for a break,

Even though I blow my nose

A hundred times a day

And my mother is nagging about

Rubbing my throat

With salt on my finger

No thanks, I think I got it.

At least I´m not sad.
