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.

Anime?

I guess I can watch things of the such.

Because I’ll be anything

You want me to be.

Allow me to come in and take.

My name is

My name is

My name is

And I don’t understand why

we’re hugging

Why

we’re in a circle.

Why

we’re here.

 

My name is

And I don’t know you.

Or you.

My name is

And I don’t understand why they didn’t show up again.

My name is

And I’m bored.

Tired.

Hungry.

Walking in with McDonalds in my hand.

My name is…

And we’re late again.

 

I can’t talk to my friends.

I can’t play in the rooms here.

My name is

And I know the serenity prayer.

My name is

And I

grew up

here…

 

My name is

As I stick my right foot in

Arms wrapped, holding other people tight.

My name is

And this is how I spend my Friday night.

 

My name is

And I’m fourteen.

Watching a whole room of two hundred people get clean.

 

My name is

And I have a little sister

By the age of 12.

Her name is

And we stare from the table at the “12 Step” books on the shelf.

 

Our names are

And we grew up in the collective of NA.

Narcotics Anonymous

In rooms that would

Remember our names.

Define

Define

Looking

Over the precipice, fate ready to fall, below to the unknown darkness to be consumed by the

Vast chasm in the ground. Be

Exhausted and succumb to willingly fall backward, with arms outstretched to each side. Find out what’s down there. While I’ll follow momentarily behind.

MEGA

MEGA

Many of the monsters that dwell in the deep

Evade the bottommost cave where she slumbers and sleeps.

Great are the restless reverberations so heavy against the walls.

Adaptive and at the ready to take captives in the brawls.

Mega is inside your mind with not

One trace of ever being kind.

Never could anyone stop the

Siege underwater in

Terror to terminate her offender’s falter.

Every soul make way for her path and

Reap the day you incited her wrath.

On the ship where she breached it’s “strong” wooden hull.

Coated in

Tentacles and suckers that attach to every last word’s skull. Built to

Overanalyze and overreact

Post-war it’s body is scar-racked. But today

It stayed to dwell in the cave, and was long forgotten under these quieting waves.

Olympian – Woman in Camisole

Olympian

 

Sweat beads down

Eyes squint to see

The pole too high

For this Olympian wannabe.

 

Why was the crossbar so damn high?

Even the professionals

Were terrified.

 

Broken legs

Busted ribs

Bruised jaws

And the pole was split.

 

Up in the sun the crossbar resides

To knock down the Olympian

With who it collides.

 

The crack of bones

On the ground below

The snap of a pole

The Olympian’s turn was thrown.

 

He looked up

To see the crossbar.

With feet below,

And the sun blocked out

By a woman

In Camisole

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.
