You Might Also Feel Dizzy

after Deborah Paradez

Diarrhea for more than two

days confusion fever and

weight loss are symptoms

of not having had enough

water you might also feel

dizzy and lose your ability

to pee or sweat to function

properly they say a blood

test must be taken on an

empty stomach they want

to see the real you when it’s

all stripped away at the lab

the nurse injects the needle

but fidgets a bit in my arm

and I pass out like a porce-

lain plate hitting the floor

when everything is stripped

away whats left is a fiber wet

with sap the part you feed your-

self on if you feast on yourself

for too long you disappear
