self-medicating


having recovered from near death
I retrace my footsteps one month
two months
or maybe more
recalling how I always
get the flu shotcome october
but this time when the new year arrived
I spent a fortnight fighting off
consciousness
occasionally succumbing
to a bad dream
but mostly
& slowly nursing myself [back to
less frequent hallucinations]
by consecrating
my very own cocktails
into patentlyomnipotent medication




april two thousand twenty
