Bedtime Story

It's 10:30 p.m.
I'm in bed. In my night shirt.
I'm coughing, although I took (sugar-free) cough syrup.
I'm in bed.
I check my sugar.
Crap. I can't go to bed this low.
But I'm already in bed.
I'm tired.
I'm coughing.
Must get up early to go to mass with No. 1.
Can't convince myself to go downstairs and drink a glass of milk.

I'm coughing and tired.
The milk is downstairs.
My bed is warm.

The milk is downstairs.

Rain is soothing and wants me to go to sleep.
My bed is warm.
The floor is cold.
