Wellness Argument

When it comes to cosmic arguments,
nobody defends the sick.
The sickness argument hides defenseless,
and the wellness argument
wins by default.

Never let healthy men
visit you in hospital.
They will tell you
to breathe and rise
when you only want to sigh.

They will bring
upright fragrances
and inquire after your appetite
when you close your heart to
reminders of laughing tables.

They won't see
how they pull you
out of the sweet pool
near the quiet gate.
