2021/5/11 #poetry Well, seems I got poison oak again. Hot water, amazing. Hotter = better More than I can usually take. Would I be able to enjoy a branding? Jumping into a fire? Probably not. It only feels like it. Takes some mental energy to resist the itch. Not much, but enough that concentration falters. A continuous distraction itself as well. Mental tasks become more effortful. Material tasks a helpful distraction from the sensations. Not many of those for me to fulfill today though. Perhaps weeding...

I was unable to forever avoid the shower, taking only baths. Once in a while a shower is nice. Would be nice a lot if my skin could take it.
