Wild Woman Wakes Up


[image from google]


Wild Woman
is feeling
haggish.

She is awake,
but her head
is not happy
about it.

She hobbles about,
moaning:
my head, my Head,
my Head!!!
which does little
to help
the situation,
but looks
rather comical.

Head begs to differ
that prone
is not the
optimum position
for Being Awake.

Neck is not happy
either.
It is muttering
and groaning.
Head is so heavy,
and neck is getting tired
of holding it up.

Sometimes
Wild Woman wishes
she could simply
unscrew them both
and set them on a shelf,
so she could
carry on
and get something done.

She remembers her mom
jokingly singing
"With Her Head Tucked
Underneath Her Arm."

That would work, too.

  3. I know this feeling all too well. Sometimes I've had such dreadful headaches that hurt the entire skull I too have wished I could just remove it and out it on a shelf somewhere and not have to have the pain anymore.
    awwww Big, gentle hugs.

  4. I have been three days with the summer bronchial thingie from hell, and part of it was that swollen head from sinuses. I wanted to chop my head off. I'm better now, thanks to my Neti Pot (sinus cleanser) and visualization, which allowed me to pass the clotty stuff up and out. Hugs, hugs, hugs. And Exedrin Extra Strength! amy
