Flu Margrit

As the sun creeps toward the horizon a certain virus is singling me out...it says: "Don't call me the common cold--I am so uncommon. Really." I try to take a nap, but ant-tribes brandishing banners are amassing in the foyer. "To Gilroy!" they cry.
But the Garlic Fest is over...now only chocolate eclairs hold sway....eeek. I wake up from this disturbing quasi-dream. Hmmmm... without sleep where do the afflicted congregate? In airport terminals with red watery eyes. In the cineplex with fever-bright fingers picking the popcorn kernels one-by-one. I have a recording session in twenty minutes--oh dang! This cold or flu or whatever it is came on so swift like an anvil or a thunderbolt from the sky. BANG-- like a piano being lowered from an apartment building. LIke the dusk that doth indeed approach now with its wisps of cloud stewed in pink and streetlights popping on across the earth.
