unwell

On the bus
my head expands
floats in the air
like a balloon
looming high above the jammed bus
above the clogged highway
beyond the mess of people trying to elbow their way in
in my nose
germs break for freedom
struggling with whatever is fighting them
antibodies, health, resistance
someone clears her throat
someone coughs in my face
the vehicle bumps on
