Green

The little green ones
are my favorite.

They're very good.

When I run out
the headache
the pain
the missing
the heat
the fear
the missing

Then I see one
such relief
such joy
and just a half
not even a whole
just a half but
it is worth gulping
without water


The pain
makes it necessary

The headache marches on
pound
drill
squeeze

My brain
squashes
small

It took
three days
for this madness
to attack

And the missing
is what keeps me
from getting
keeps me
inside
keeps me
from outside

So more missing

Until
I can't take it anymore
and the missing
turns into needing

So I go

the little green ones are my favorite

calm
