CROHN'S POEMS

RECOVERED

RECOVERED

You are fine
Off to school now
Doing drama
visiting friends
baby-sitting
busy teen stuff
and I
who have been
steel strong
robot efficient
permanently cheerful
while you were sick
should be singing
doing arabesque's
going shopping
Instead
I lie
a total blob
of depression
heaped on the floor
muscles ache
head hurts
cough cough
I crawl
under the coach
with the fleas
until it's time
to hop again
