three poems

"The Day I Wrote His Obituary"


I got so drunk

I was scared to swallow

my antidepressants



My nerves are brittle

and veins are busted

until the required

Dilaudid 2mg



"Mortal Remains of a Used Up Woman"



from all of the

counting and preserving 

Xanax and Ativan

rolling around

in the bottom of

her purse.
