Consumed

A wracking cough

Leaves her limp

Like wet washing on a line

Unable to fill

Her tissue paper

Lungs

The hacking echoes

Through the dull cottonwool

Of her ears

Eyes water

Bulge

She has to close them

Regain

Dignity

As she gathers and coils her body

Ready for the next fit

Consumptove Victorians
