Curing Madness

I wouldn’t say that I am manic — that word implies insane

happiness? surely giddiness? the same, they are strangers to me

mostly, madness is not the problem with

my creativity is suffering my depression as well

as it can.

And it can, and it can.

Can I write you a prescription?

It will cure all that ails 

you know the way out; please pay at Reception.

. . . . . .

But I am not myself, now

there is nothing, nothing left of me,

just this depression, it seems

an affordable price, again

make check payable to: Artist, Starving(?)

creativity is the madness

is not the problem

is the treatment, working

Well, do the drug companies

keep themselves in your pocket,

do they, Doctor?

Death-pedaling is an oath –

breaking spirits should not be acceptable

practice your patients more kindly, please

take me off of your black-blocked medicine.
