eero got himself stuck
on a windowsill 10-ft. up from the floor.
he meowed and meowed, but wouldn't jump down to me,
so i had to tear him off. this wasn't the first time this has happened.
i have the scars to prove it.
i have a headache that just won't go away!
i've a hunch it stems from this ache behind my shoulder,
which runs up the right side of my neck
and into the back of my right eye.
it no longer aches, really.
just nag, nag, nagging.
why is this happening?
is this gonna last forever?
is this real life?
