COINCIDENTAL DYSFUNCTION
(1/24/18)

feeling bad

too bad
to leave
the house

no one
in the vicinity
knows
of my condition

however
quite unexpectedly
a knock
upon the door
breaks
the self suffering

there stands
a neighbor
with soup
in hand

just
the medication
needed

thanks
are given

the charitable
eyes
are assessed

I have
no idea
what to offer
in return
to assuage
that malady

I close
the door
to be alone
with mine
