My body shifted
by four days
a 23 day cycle
is nothing to laugh at
lack of sleep
grief, guilt, bad news,
mini ocular mushroom cloud migraines
have a golden color
in the pitch black inside my head
terror, hyperventilation and
a panic attack during a six hour power outage
caused by unknown mechanical failure.
I’m influencing the mood of my small earth deity,
Girlie was SCREAMING at 5:30 am this morning.
and the great monthly visitor
(let me know that I am virile,
isn’t four kids enough proof)
though unbalanced pushed me uphill
from the pit into a rage.
I knocked over a big thing,
Girlie said, “Uh-oh”
I’ve got to find
something to hold onto.
I’m taking a time out.
I earned it.
I want to take my rue,
but I can’t find my book.
There is too much in
my system to take a
poison that will
interact badly today.
Calling a help line
never helps my kind of imbalance,
they talk about simplicity
“drink a glass of water.
I am shaking.
I need a cleanser
I require assistance.
Dandelion, okay, who doesn’t have that.
Milk Thistle, I have Thisle but it is not flowering or white
Tumeric, kitchen herb I have not seen in three years
Green Tea, got that, but hold old is it?
Garlic, fresh I will pull from the garden
Cilantro, fresh I will pull from the garden
I really would like some burdock root, but I seem to have the only yard in my state without burdock.
