"one hell of a legacy."

i feel down and dark and depressed,
and i should probably start taking
my Zoloft again,
but i'm not going to because
prescription drugs are no fun
if they're prescribed to you.

It's sometime after you've reached this conclusion
—admittedly before certain kitchen utensils
gain an extra luster,
but after everything your mother says pisses you off beyond belief—
that you realize your life is
f a l l ing a p a r t quicker than
the broken family
Bible that no one's pick up for years.
