Imagined Illness

Sometimes
After writing a poem
I feel nauseous
The process inspires
Vertigo
Requires me to take
Precautions
Not standing up too
Quickly
Not eating directly
After getting so
Much out
Nothing left inside
Stomach growls
New hungers
Develop
Kin to a new love

(old memories)

Only safer
Less intricate &
Easier to clean up
After

Sometimes
Old memories
Inspire new poems
And the process
Repeats
My immune system
Is shot
Could be worse
Could be
Confronted by
Old love

(feeling nauseous)
