Carl

The room next to us
divided air
curtain
sheet drawn this way
that way
'oh please someone help me'
high pitch
low pitch
'oh my back'
not laughs
but moans
roaring from his
raging body
disconnected soul
detox
drug
withdrawal
asking for morphine
'don't let me out'
another drug
knowing what takes
the skin crawling
fetal position away
'heyheyheyheyhey'
'ithurtsithurtsithurts'
'uhuhuhuhuhuh'
silence
shut the body door
staff ignore requests
he was here yesterday
back tomorrow
'do they have any?'
any what
real drugs
ad
add
addict
addiction
'oh mommy i'm sorry oh mommy oh mommy'
