The Mag #222 - 1 June 2014

Ah yes, let's sink our teeth into Tess Kincaid's photo today!

Ten tiny little capsules
for ten little worries.
spiteful yearnings
bashfully blind
I am.

I hide behind 
my wall of capsules
and ample make-believe battles
afire by wispy 
flyaway candles.
One more capsule
trapped in mutiny
of so many
evening rituals.

Incessant hurtful worries
clinging to my ankles
What was I thinking?
Just walk away
say good-bye
ten tiny little capsules
I need you not.

i wish we, as a society, could rely less on pill-popping to solve things.

Thunder, same with me, although I do try to take vitamins too! When I remember. Growing up, my mother gave me a spoon of Cod Liver Oil everyday!

Pills are not always the solution sometimes they are the problem..
