Analgesia

He tossed me the bottle.

Pills rattled,

white capsules

that promised relief from pain.

I threw them back

for there’s nothing

that will calm the agony

of heart

and mind

crushed,

pulverized beyond repair.

Nothing

short of death.

Thanks, Mike. I didn't really intend for it to go where it went, but there is a certain amount of truth in this.
