not tonight, vicodin

you never pulled me in.

at 9 p.m., i swallowed you.

at 10, surprise. eyes wide open. blink, blink. wired. narcotic haze eludes me.

at 11, a seventh-grader pulling rubber bands from her mouth and snapping them, gracelessly, at the bend.

by midnight, swarming bees’ knees.

  1. I hate Vicodin, too! Doesn’t do squat for pain and only makes the mind hazy.
