Head Lice

It will be okay one day soon.
I'll look back on this time
"Whatever was I thinking?
What pipedreams! Why?
Especially as I don't smoke a pipe,
let alone have anything at all to put in one."

So I will look back.
It is sort of like a bad case of head lice.
You cannot bear the bite, the itch, the burning.
Scratch til you bleed.
So satisfying. Scratching scratching scratching.
one day soon
you will shampoo with chrysanthemum extract
and pick the dead nits from your soul.

Only you could associate head lice with affection.
