you know the

you know the
medication has
kicked in
when you stop
wondering when the
medication will
hit, and there is
a certain
cinematic
sheen to the next
six hours, if you are
lucky. but
as much as a web
can be called
a safety net, there
is always the
suspicion that
you are still leaking
somewhere
and it drips
drips
drips

in the recurrent key of
loss, we pick up dumb
instruments, focus
all peripherals on the faint
rhythmic blur of one another’s
hearts

the tendency to
outrun today
in search of tomorrow starts
as a tremolo hidden
in the pit of anger

there are no notes
to rival the scale of
morphine it will take
to pinch off this sadness
