Poem Twenty-Eight




It starts with a twinge,

a slight feeling of pressure

in my head that gradually

becomes a small pain. I

massage it, hoping it’ll

go away. Then I start to

notice that my head has

become hotter than normal.

And the pain has spread.

I take a couple Excedrin

and lay down, trying to

take the pressure off my skull.

With any luck, it’ll be gone

within the hour, or at least

by the next morning. If not,

a hot shower and extra sleep

may be just what is needed.


Thank goodness these only

happen on rare occasions.
