"It's about words, and words are all I have…"



Two whitehaired men   eye me

One has the laugh of a 6 yr. old boy

I cannot say that I am  not  intrigued

I have probably been   closer to         death’s door  

than they   in the past few weeks


A near overdose of migraine meds

The cure in this case far worse than    the disease:

twitchy muscles nausea racy heart  bizarre intentions

not to mention   ideations –       My cabbie wondered

if I might be pregnant ?


Which sounded thoroughly   messianic    to me
