Oh, Pain Pill!

Emily Pérez

you find me full

of bitter twilight

pull my ribcage

by a string, dangle it

and ring the deep

brass bell that woo-

woos through, you

slip my feeling

in the fix and see

it fill with foggy

swill, the jelly jiggling

on my mind’s white

napkin stills

you shh-shh all my nay

saying my rankled cells

you reel my will
