i try to justify my exhaustion,
slap a label on it complete with
dosage instructions and warnings
written in cramped letters. i hand it
out to everyone i meet, mumbling
apologetically but also desperate
that they read it through.
i am amazed when some people
rip off the label and toss it away, say,
i don’t need to know the scientific
name. i’ll put this in my cabinet in
a safe, dry place and if it ever runs out,
great. if it’s a daily dose from now till
i’ll take it. no questions asked.
