Is the medication working?

At parties, I watch the clock

And tap my foot until I can leave

I make it out when everyone turns

To listen to a speech

I rush to hide my broken body

beneath the covers

wearing both a brace and a retainer

But I no longer feel the need

To smoke or drink

I disappear into my house

Instead of wild on the streets

I take respite in the backseat
