Rubbing in the embrocation

When your mind is telling your bones
to stop creaking
but your brain is leaking
Molotov’s
and your body is on fire,

taking a blood thinner
which does nothing for the fat
in me.

First days are often the worst days
but not always.

So tired
like
the money ran out on my meter
and time has expired,

where there is a will
it will be done
the sun is not ready
to set on this one
yet.
