How To Eat Crow

How To Eat Crow

written by: Lisa Reynolds


write a poem about
pain med addiction

admit assertion,
it will never happen to me

empty vanity
of prescription bottles

nickname pills
blues – fast acting
pinks – slow release

swallow superiority
with pungent cheese

let the taste settle
