Sheets and piles of blankets casually placed,
Body aches and pain
Sniffles, coughs, sneezes, and sighs
Mingled with the scents of camphor and eucalyptus
Bottles of cough syrups and asprin
Tissues in boxes, overflowing from trash cans. carpeting the floors
This is not a commercial !
This is my life!
