Monotherapy

One Leaf Among Many

The pills I pop are not enough
To pop me out of here.
Addictions though prefer the pop
And that is what I fear.


Text: “Monotherapy” is a new word for me and I am not on any pills. I am linking this to dVerse Open Link Night. Toni is hosting.

I enjoy walking, poetry and short prose as well as taking pictures with my phone.

  1. Lovely popping poem Frank! I pop pills every single day – and your poem speaks to me – there is a complex relationship in the act of pill popping – although there really is very little perky ‘pop-pop-popping’ to it!! But I shall try to infuse the sombre task with the memory of your poem :))

    1. Best wishes on all the pill popping, Shaista! As I think about it I do take vitamins which are in pill form, so I guess I do some popping myself as well. I hope those vitamins aren’t addicting.
