Spinning Elbows:

Have you ever listened to a Tartini sonata while bleeding from the head?

The sound of the shower and mathematical music theory aiding your recuperation.

Drips of coloured water, giving a basis to my disheveled clarity.

I know what you’re thinking, is this man crazy?

I went to the ER, my co-pay was $1,000, stitches would have cost me close to $700.

The nurse jokingly laughed “seems like you can’t go anywhere, HAHAHAHA!”

Could you imagine such casual cruelty?

From women eating cottage cheese?

So I stood, in front of the emergency room, in the second richest country in the world.

Wondering how to heal my head-wound.

I’d love to drop poetry about the absurdity of the situation, yet time is a pressing matter.

I felt like I was in a movie. I just lacked the Russian vodka and the moment would’ve been film worthy.

Yet, the violin pressed on.

And I healed myself, with artificial flesh-like glue and butterfly sutures.

Now, I’m off to work… 🏃🏻🏃🏻🏃🏻
