To Pill Or Not To Pill

Written for: Poetic Asides November 2016 Chapbook Challenge – Day 21
Write a thinking out loud poem.

How many
more days do I have
to suffer
with these pills?
My stomach is objecting
with rawness and pain.

What is the difference
if I stop a few days short
of thirty?
Will it cause
delay in healing?
Wish I knew.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
