My hubby touched my wrist last night,
“You are burning up, are you alright?”

“Yes dear, I am fine,

My joints burn like this all the time.
Feel my forehead and you’ll see,
It’s the only normal part of me.”

It feels like I sit in a frying pan,
Not knowing where the next fire will land.
Don’t panic if you touch my skin…
RA left some burners on again.
If smoke starts rolling from my clothes,
Just put me out with the garden hose.
