no I don’t want those anymore
that made it worse

where are you going in the back of my head
the center to the left
on top are you trying to bore
out or into my skull
obvious it’s obvious
you’re boring
out
in over
spreading along the pink
fleshy globules of worm knowledge
wriggling with
the best but
I can stop you
no, I don’t don’t
I don’t have a problem
I’m just dizzy
Just tired
The feeling of two
many
pills
Making the worms go away
“It’s just that we’re concerned.”
it’s working as my mouth
Mumbles over my tongue
Grasping at linguistics I learned
A hundred milligrams ago
And will barely master in two hundred
“Your weight has dropped dramatically
since you’ve started this medication.”
But it’s working
You’re boring
Into my head with your curved teeth
The bald-headed jackal is
Circling
Making me his preying guinea pig
