Reading now: 965

My arms, functional just yesterday, are useless sludge. I heave one hand up and push a few green beans into my mouth without moving my head, resting before I am able to chew.

A fork sits outside my line of vision, so it does not exist. I am spectral. This is long COVID after a year and a half. My husband comes in, carrying an armful of books from the library.
