Noon on a Tuesday
Listening to Radiohead
wondering what he’s 
up to he’s right next
to me I can feel his
warm breath hugging my
neck there’s wrestling
on tv all of it is 
contrived people climbing
steel cages for no
apparent reason i am 
manic while i watch all
of these men beat each
other come to me, i say
to the tv, i’ll beat you
right in the middle of
my living room i’m the 
queen of all things bloody,
i say and he hears me, 
he hears me, this is the
end of my manic episodes
he gives me lithium 
i absorb it in my gut.
