“maybe this is a heart attack

i googled womens heart attack symptoms

i had many of them/but really? — i thought — naaaa

i took some bayer aspirin

thank god

saved by a tv commercial/literally”

O’Donnell said a visit to the doctor confirmed that one of her arteries was 99% blocked, but a stent was put in; now she’s doing well and, obviously, back to writing blog-poetry.
