Medicated

Quack

 

“Take these pills,

Once a day.”

He says.

 

“Take these pills

Once a day,

And you’ll be okay.”

He says.

 

Looking around the office

It’s white

Sterile-feeling-white.

Bright shiny objects-

Instruments-

Used to tell me what he’d told me too.

 

“Once a day,

When you get out of bed.”

“Don’t forget them.”

“This is all in your head!”

 

The pill bottle has a

White cap

“Twist here” “Childproof”

And an orange body.

“To be taken orally” “500 mg”

 

“You need medicated!”

 

Later

I take the bottle in hand

From the drug store pharmacy down the street.

I’m not crazy.

Not in my belief.

Soon enough

Soon enough

 

In 30 seconds

you will be underwater

In 40 seconds

you will be

unconscious

 

In 45 seconds

the light will turn green

And in 50

you’ll nearly kill your little sister.

 

In 55

she’ll realized what’s happened.

And in 60

she’ll panic.

 

 

“Dude… would you be okay

if we stop at dads?”

I remember that his wife is home today.

 

 

“No I just really need a drink of water.”

No man, I just don’t feel too well.

 

 

I feel….

warm.

That kind of warm that makes you… tired.

I blink.

 

 

and then…

Something’s gone wrong.

White Band

White Band

What are you in for?

 

Enlarged heart

Third degree burns

Bit by a dog

Appendicitis concerns.

 

Check in at the front desk.

Dad’s insurance will have to cover I guess.

 

Last name

First name

DOB

Yes, my roommate drove me.

 

This place is sick

Germy

Infectious

“I can wait to shower after this.”

 

The wait could be four hours or more

And six until you’re discharged in the morn’.

 

How did it happen?

 

A car accident

A crash

A fall

I didn’t mean for it to happen at all.

 

Reason for coming in?

Hold out your wrist and put on this white band.

 

All looks normal

Your heart looks fine

Blood work is near perfect

We’re not sure what was the affect.

 

But there’s no concussion

Reflexes

Neurons

All look good.

 

Go home

You’re fine in all likelihood.

 

But to commemorate your visit

A bracelet of PVC

A white band

To remember your head injury.
