Author’s Note: No images are my own.
I went to the hospital to get my blood drawn
I fainted with the needle in my arm
Worries infiltrated me
Anxiety betrayed me
Reality informed me of high triglycerides
I am getting older
My hair is Salt and Sand in places
My knees don’t carry me as well as they used too
My stomach acid refluxes at times.
I’m going to have to watch my triglycerides
These little lipids unfortunately have screamed
They’ll find they’ll not have a voice with me
They shall be supressed.
I will define their reality.
