Hello dull ache tugging at the base of the skull. Hello sunlight pink behind the lids. Hello stinging zombie jaw, I release you from your meaningless labor. Hello farts. Hello shoulder bone and hip bone bearing up this heap in the dark. Hello hamstrings and achilles, metatarsels and phalanges, wiggling against each other in the heap. Hello bladder, go back to sleep. Hello warmth and mouth breathing behind my head. Hello! Claw at my foot, orange cat stalking all black pupils on the edge of every scene. Hello cloud of white blankets I wrap around me like so much fluffy armor. Hey roll and stretch and cool metal headboard on my hands. Hi lungs I can only imagine as two oddly shaped pink whoopee cushions. I fill you and stretch you to your tiniest points and let out a guttural yawp. Hey you with the open mouth and the adam’s apple sticking up above the sheet, sounding the deep tones of a humpback whale, warm and heavy heap. All things roll toward the heavy one here. Hello elbow point I plant on the other side of me. Hello large warm hand on my back, long arm pushing me over without a word. Hi vertical world, sinuses draining down, head’s weight fading into the background. Hello gravity transforming me from heap into lines and pendulums and levers. Hallo! down there cold feet taking the leap to bear the weight out amongst the predators. Hail, feet.
