Medicine Cabinet

No one is allowed to look in my medicine cabinet
except my friends who by all accounts are as sick as i am
and my aunts who are elderly and have their own impressive stacks
and my boyfriend who mostly just cares about sex
and largely prefers me being nice to him
which many of the pills allow me to become
instead of crying shaking angry drunk
for him, I’ve nicknamed my medication
nice pills and calm down pills and healthy pills
and he doesn’t seem to have a problem with it

so I guess I’m talking about my father, who is visiting
my father is not allowed to look in my medicine cabinet
because he has passed down some impressive genes
and he doesn’t believe in taking pills for sadness
or even the overuse of antibiotics, which I’m also doing
and suddenly I feel terrible about all of it
