From the book My Cat Knows Karate

I’m feeling sick.
My face is red.
I’m dazed and dizzy
in my head.
I think I need to
stay in bed
at least about a week.

My stomach’s tied
in awful knots.
I’m breaking out
with purple spots.
I’m seeing stars
and lots of dots.
I feel like I should shriek.

I don’t know what
to do or say.
I’d never ever
felt this way,
until today
when Anna-Kay
kissed me on the cheek.
