who why when

C, and D Vitamin
supplements
twenty minutes of daily cardio
krill oil
a strict dietary regime
whole wheats, grains
vegetables
rice

avoid triglycerides
& fructose
my Doctor (seemingly) is not
as interested
in my
self
as i’d like him to be

ignorantly, i assumed
he
a licensed health practitioner
would do more
than refer me to
elsewhere,
do more than act baffled
in my presence

Today i woke
w/left side of body numb
from the neck down
difficulty swallowing
cold extremities
pulse
weak
skin pale,
depleted

I warmed consommé on the stove
and nipped at it
in a blanket wrap
labored breathing
in my chair
waiting
for this useless body to animate
“i’ll be in the E.R. again,
can’t afford a cab, let alone an
ambulance.”

reality is betraying sanity
who have i become?
why
do i not recognize
this person?

when did i
disappear?
