benadryl [poem]

I take benadryl to help me sleep at night
sometimes
I also have an itch to soothe
but mostly I just
need a way to make this body as tired as
the brain that runs it
god damn it
but if there’s a way to be addicted
to allergy medicine
I’ve found it in blurry eyes and fuzzy thoughts
brought on by
two little pink pills
