T-Day plus 13


Don’t move!

She is sleeping,

She is peaceful for half an hour.

Ignore the ache that is developing in your back, your shoulder, your neck;

Don’t even attempt to scratch the itch on your buttock, your crotch, your inner thigh;

And pay no heed to the gurgling, rumbling Vesuvius of hunger that is threatening to erupt in your stomach.

She is peaceful,

She is sleeping for half an hour;

Don’t move!

And hold in the wee

Like you have never held in wee before.
