“I cannot go to world today, said Feisty Michelle K. O’Kane. My entire body is— Covered with speckles. Like my red blood cells, I have poikilocytosis freckles. A mass of iron rusting my brain— Jumping jackasses on my portal vein. My mouth —it blows up when I sigh. My retinal scan: one diabetic eye. I cannot pull myself out of bed. A shrink is shrinking out my head. As a child I was never properly labeled. No wonder I'm now mentally disabled. My collarbone twitches My elbow itches— Now eyes are blue. It might be instamatic flu. My memories hurt when I move my chin. My sanity has done caved in. My neck is broke in my right shoulder— Perhaps because I'm now bipolar² My blood is being such a dick. My CBC says I’m now anemic? Red blood cells are asphyxiating. Oxygen is something they're no longer creating. My h-h-H-hh-heartbeat is erratic— Wait—now that cunt is static. When it snows—I faint. Ingemar Stenmark I ain't. (swish) Meechelle, my bell— Are these things that go together well? No idea. My memory is hell. I still drink boba tea. Vanilla, peach and strawberry. Mmmm—so delicious! My diabetic nurse says: “You're inauspicious." Climbing around, on my trusty ladder Happened to fall right onto my gall bladder. I lost that organ, and part of my brain. Worse than all that— I lost my mane My teeth fall out when horses bray. Then they pick up my teeth and say, Hay, hay, hayeeee Hay hip hip hypoxia This airhead has no oxygen— No iron, no hemoglobin— C02 Woe is me, I got a lotta booboos Temporomandibular disorder— Like bipolar, another disorder. You know what sucks? TMJ. Now my ear hurts when I pray. But I have nothing to fear. The Spirit is the Conscious Ear. We actually Hear When We inspect—that's audible— That is admitted—Here— —what? What’s that? What’s that you say? You say today is motherfuckin' Tuesday? G’bye! It's honey lavender boba day. 1. Poikilocytosis refers to the change in shape of the red blood cells, often due to certain medical conditions. This can affect the ability of the red blood cells to transport oxygen throughout the body.
