I used to not trust
chemical health
from a bottle. Something
in my brain told me it
was unnatural, like
the man in the duct-
taped, steampunk hat
who told me up is not
always above us, only is
when the Earth is at
a certain angle.
and even though I
wanted to argue with him,
he was so sure of
himself that I just
took the pills instead.
