Although I rarely write body poems, I write about
hives because there is a Happy Ending.
We all need those now.
I got hives in July. They just appeared . Arms and legs and I even
had a hive on my lip one day. No discernible source.
Every single day until November 11 hives appeared
I took Benadryl at night Zyrtec in the day
went to a few MDs
my favorite acupuncturist Chinese herbalist
named Frank I took remedies moved my energy around
did not eat this and that nothing worked I still had
hives and then one inauspicious day last week
they disappeared. Not even one hive on my elbow.
