I hate being sick. I really do. I've been hit with the coughing, sore throat, runny-nose crap that has been making the rounds. I'm right on the cusp of becoming really sick. I'm still up and walking around. But, I'm achy and feel yucky and tired. I still have a chance to beat the cold like Hans did. So, I'm home and resting with medicine and music. M'ris' home made pseudo egg drop soup is really good and very simple to make. Though, I do have to call into work for a meeting this afternoon. I'm going to sound really interesting, I suspect.

Bitter Sweet Siren
Hers is a voice that sounds like Kathleen Turner
on a hot summer night as she speaks to her lover.
Warm honey over wet sand, but not sticky sweet.
More like the rough touch of a cat's tongue
as it affectionately grooms you.

Sexy with its paradoxically soft and hard sounds
that make you want to hear more -
Never mind what her voice is saying.
Though, the right words are icing on the cake.

Too bad this voice only comes to her
in the bleakness of unwanted illness.
Cruel in its tempting call
while her body is too weak to respond.
