A poem about being sick.

An outsider in my own body
Curiosity as stomach empties into bucket
Amazed at how body rejects and ejects
Calm as body revolts against sickness

Sleep finally comes as body starts to heal
Drift into fitful moments of rest
All of body's energy spent attacking sickness
Little left except to doze in cooperation
