Recovery from Dengue

My calves look like a still from CSI

and my thighs a satellite view of Mars

blotched blottled capillaries waving up to the skin

and i have reached a boredom which can only lead to creativity

six days in bed

i now drag round dead weight legs

but my mind is buzzing

and the sweats have stopped

and i look at websites and uncover old dreams

and put my positive powers into

raising my platelet count so i can leave my prison room

walk free

and never have to see another tray of hospital food
