You are in the middle of a bad marriage
or a great affair, or you are spending
your Vegas losses in a bar.

“A Pharmacist In Love,” by Jocko Benoit

The pharmacist is in love,
Sculpting pills into heart shapes,
Her tongue all homeopathic honey
As she names each of the sick in line,
All of their medicine mislabeled, the dosage
Written in poetry: “Take it all in
Slowly,” “Apply until your eyes
See what has always been there.”
