zoloft

i am sad

like broken paved roads plagued by pot holes.

the tire that apologizes for bursting.

a driver’s weeping is heard.

stranded.

i am sad

like elevators that stop on wrong floors.

the chain links that dangle without reason.

a poor mechanic’s maneuver.

stuck.

i am sad

like a breeched birth.

the mom who pushed anyway.

a parental mishap.

killed.

i am sad

like broken ribs.

the cage that couldn’t contain.

a poor design.

escape.

i am sad

like my body isn’t mine.

the one that never got over the hill.

a shame.

self-inflicted.

-l.h.
