Palliative

David_Plunkert_11111

Serotonin’s
what black hearts grown in

deplete the dosage
invite psychosis

receptors confused
not broken, contused

bruises of purple and blue
flower only when they’ve wounded you

repeat prescription, repeat prescription
my GP speaks in robot diction

We pass from being into having been
pharmaceutically silenced, conveniently unseen
