Vital Signs

by - April 18, 2015

I scribbled and doodled
As frivolous as electrocardiogram strips
Yet, not even a man in a white coat
Wept nor meek
Sleepless nights
How I begged for pills
Do you have a yellow pen?
Prescribe some Rivotrils, please

Pale palms
Eccentric pulse
A toxin, pinned
Incised the sino atrial apart

Necrotized every inch of hope
Demasticated soul, dancing in mope

Ventricular Tachy then Brady
but breathing still
still here
