These Pills Will Help You

Oh, the joys of having health insurance,
and his voice, reassuring,
“These pills will help you, honey,
I’m so glad you finally got them
be sure to take them every morning,”
and his winter shoes all lined up at my door
as if he were still here in bed
out with my puppy or cooking in the kitchen
while i am writhing and vomiting
on the cold, tile floor
