Birthday Flu

Oh
hello
birthday flu
I remember the last time I had you
because it was last year
and quite possibly
every year before that too
I don’t know why
I am so often sick on my birthday
but I blame the albatross
stupid albatross
all feathery and gross
I should be doing actual work
but I have a headache and feel icky
so I shall stretch out this poem
in glorious procrastination
and have another chocolate cookie
even though
I’m not
really
hungry
