Cough Cough Coughy Cough

I’ve had the direst couple of weeks because DB kindly brought me the latest flu doing the rounds and it seems that all I did was cough. Cough cough cough. Or wake up coughing and gasping for air. Waking up from weird fever dreams where someone posted me a live cat, I killed ALL the dolphins to save my email, and a flock of tiny turtledoves ripped apart an enormous spider. Happily, I also woke up with this fully formed Haiku hanging in the air. And luckily for me, it didn’t fade into oblivion like a fever dream when I went back to sleep.
