Tuesday Night
Tuesday Night

I

It should be enough
you know.
But its not.
It does not pay the rent
fill my stomach
pay my student loans
or warm my small room.
(and its so cold now in Boston
ice clings to my throat when I wake)
It should be enough
just to be sane
even for a little while.

II

They tell me
to fill my emptiness with things
I do not have the gold for.
Dull my grief with
their chemicals that my body doesnt need.
They tell me
my fragile peace is
undesirable.
They wont allow it.
Theres no profit for them.
(No Paxil, Prozac, Ambien, Ritalin, Vallium)
My despair
is their gain of riches.

III

Oh
When youre gone
(or, rather, taken from me)
wholl keep me
from tearing myself
apart.
