296.3

i take my pills

submit to the labels

assigned by an expert

and her icd-9

warm the couch

of my questioner

my advisor

probe my past

practice mindfulness

count blessings

stay sober

but still

dark waves wash in

at highest tide

amid darkest night

magnetic despair

draws me

straight down

all the things

intended to keep me firm

feet on solid ground

read like fiction

and the only truth

is all the lies
