Quivvs

Derric Saville
November 7, 2012

Left side’s gone to the quivvs,
a hyper-gelatinous mass,
plugged into the sockets,
at Christmas time,
while the right side gets the stabs,
an epee to the thigh, then knee,
or buttockal regions,
flutters,
not like a bird taking wing,
but more like a lava soup,
bubbling,
never knowing where the next roiling,
exploding burst will strike,
the stomach doing flips and flops,
spinning, twirling top-like upside down,
leaning to the left,
back against the chair,
eyes and head akimbo,
settling into a posture more reminiscent,
of strangers perplexion at each other’s faces,
certain they’d met before,
but really only seeing a image of themselves,
in a mirror of their apposite,
gazing as a vacuous formless blob,
drooling into the darkness,
while the sunlight searches longingly,
for an edgeless horizon to breach,
as I wait endlessly for the symptoms to abate,
that I may stagger down the hall,
crawl a’neathe the covers, hug my seven
comfort pillows, affix the mask unto my face,
breathe deep the lingering menthol vapors,
while the slides of places I’ve never seen,
flashcard through my sallow neurons,
and I wander helplessly into the long goodnight.

A night also filled with the trembles.

I've lost control over my muscles, but haven't given up trying to re-wrest the authority from their randomnicity.
Derric Saville added this note
The Drs. still don't know why my body is spasming all day and night, but it keeps me toned, and losing weight.

Will the pain abate when the long goodnight arrives?
Derric Saville added this note
Body has the Quivvs tonight, twitching all over, unpredictably punching my muscles from the inside, watching my clothing jump all over.
Derric Saville added this note
back spasms lock me into the isolation of a chair.

Another day of silent suffering, limping through our errands, a burden to my spouse.
Derric Saville added this note
Awakened again by my back and aft of my legs quivering. Dr. ruled out ALS, still awaiting other tests.
Derric Saville added this note
I again felt the Quivvs for two minutes this morning laying stock still while my entire body tremble from the nerves coming alive all at once.
