“Fever Dream”

Alprazolam Dear//

Diazepam’s gone to bed/
Alice missed the execution by head//

The hatter had gone with the diaz-
(Diaz-dee-uh s- portuguese- bartholomew)-
Epam-
(EPAM-elementary perceiver and memorizer)-

Hatting/
Hating/
Creating/
Hate/
For the chemicals working so hard/
The molecules equally busy/
Fizzy/
Fizzy/
Lakes/

Breaks/
In the structure of the pink/
Pepto-Bismol fizzing hating/
Crazies/
Now sleeping/

Diazepam dreaming/
Alprazolam creating/
Alice and hatter gone along/
