A Day in the Life of a Sick Woman

A cat in heat has been caterwauling
non-stop for at least a week
and fire trucks are wailing and road
rage-crazed drivers are honking their
horns and buses are vroom-vrooming
and kids are playing basketball in the
parking lot behind the house, the ball
thumping repeatedly on the pavement
making the dogs bark and the drive-up
kid at McD’s is talking into the mic so loud
I can hear each and every Yat infused
syllable she speaks to each and every
fast food starved patron who drives up
and lord have mercy I’m sick and
tired of being sick and tired and can some
one tell me which saint I need to pray to
to give me some peace.
