The Common Cold and an Extraordinary Friend

Sick with a cold so Martin brought me tea and cough drops

There’s a drum circle playing on my temples
My facial sinuses have been stuffed with 1,000 pebbles
My temperature’s up
I need to lie down

Knock, knock, knock

“You need to drink this
The plantain will make you feel better, but the flavor is strong
Add chamomile to taste – it will feel less wrong
A liter of hot water, you have to let it steep
Oh, by the way, last night, how did you sleep?”

– Sometimes even illness can lead to beautiful things.
