This is Probably More of a Worry Thought than a Poem, #44

Bronchitis is very easily cured.
He's off the anti-biotic
and should be getting better,
but they're hiccup-coughs
those that won't let you be
so you have to suppress them
until the cough builds & erupts
all over again. He's older, suddenly.
Though there's no real reason to worry
because a sickness fades
a cough fades, so do hiccups
but then there's sleep &
the hours of it lost, and,
with some help & force, regained.
His voice is still the same,
and probably will be in July,
when I'll see him again.
