How Low Can You Go?

How low can you go - said the meter to the blood

38, 22 and my head feels like mud


I poke my pinky again cause my index is tired

Hot, anxious, sweating, both exhausted and wired


3333 – that’s not right - uh oh seeing double

And I’m out of juice, that means big trouble


I open the freezer and think oh what is that?

Pint of Ben & Jerrys should fix this  in a snap


On the floor of the kitchen, with the best ice cream ever

Spoon shaking, this is yummy, I am feeling quite clever


I laugh at myself – I must be quite a site

In my pjs eating ice cream in the middle of the night


And now I’m just freezing, but the meter says 96

Want to go back to bed, get warm with blankets


I crawl into the cocoon of warm dreams

Grateful for meters, 96es and surprise ice cream
