My Ativan Prescription

is filled @ the pharmacy

but I’m trying to figure

whether to purl or knit


of going to get It —

there was a time

a grey time

when I would have held

the bottle close

& seen My Self

indulging in several times

the recommended dose

just to conk out

from life

or death
