NO PILL APPLIES
(2/1/17)

what looks
like
a lack
of energy

is simply
often
a lack
of interest

no pharmaceutical
cure
has an effect
upon that
deficiency

we see
the world
at times
as a commercial

filled
with sounds
and images

selling something
that we're
not buying

we just
feel apart
from the
proceedings

for whatever
the reason

no external
modus operandi
seems to have
an effect

only
an inner
conversion
will relieve us
or our apathy

so leave
us
alone

the mood
will probably
pass

"maybe
you're not getting
enough sleep

what time
do you go
to bed?"

please

go away
