Influenza Stanza

A rippling of shivered skin
Convulsing tides of sweat
Induced spasms of chaotic
Visions of cataclysmic madness

Choking down pharmaceutical
Faith in medicinal fists, full
Of killers
Of pain

Where writhing in torsions of hotness
Lapse fleetingly into delicious
Snatches of delusional sleep and
Dream; among corpses of influenza victims

Laid bare by blinding
Headaches splitting
Muscle mucus into 
Coughing fits of 
Laughter why me

To peel apart the cocoon
Of a drug sloughed illness
Where the silhouette of humanity
Sings your recovery
Over a beaten body
