American Dream

A fever’s like a campfire on your face,
Sirocco blowing flames into your throat:
T-shirt and shorts, then blankets, sweats, and coat–
A Kafkaesque encaustic cosh embrace.

    I like the use of Kafkaesque! Also. It makes me nod in understanding. : )

      Thanks! This week’s been a sad sick slumber party–if Rip Van Winkle had a younger brother who was a sleep sprinter I might have beaten him this week 🙂
