Archive for the tag “cough”

so I left for a pint and never did come back

this cough’s been bothering me for a long time
and I can tell it’s bothering others too
but they don’t say a word

they think something must be wrong with me
because of the cough

after a few days
I start trying to disguise it in ways indescribable

they sent me away with orders not to return without
proof that the cough is gone for good

march two thousand seventeen
