LABEL: a cautionary poem

i was ready to

bolt from my boyfriend

shave off my hair dig a

grave for my dog (i was

sure he was dying) abandon

my career cancel plans

for vacation whirligig through

traffic crash my car into

a wall – until i

 

read the fine print on

prescribed ibuprofen – a rare

side effect is crippling

depression.
