sick day


i vomited twice.
this morning sickness fake
not sign of life that first fear
a woman feels on knees before toilet
unrealized– white blue green pills worked.
period came to wake me
announced its presence on blue fabric
two days early as red rorschach stain.
i see a cave a spooky old tree shadows
shaped like afraid of the dark–
every berenstain bear story to be read
on halloween. do other women make pictures
in their blood? what else should we do
before soaking cotton in sink?
the water would be prettier
if it were pink but
it’s the color of sunset
when the air is heavy with dust–
pollution level orange unsafe
not fit for breathing.
