toxic tylenol
don’t guzzle by the mouthful
or you might find yourself
    elsewhere

there’s a damp towel on the rack
toothpaste oozing into the sink
and the mirror shows reflections
    not redemptions

we’ve got bandages for 
    bad things
hair dye
in case you need to skip town
pink pills
purple pills
        and power

essential oils on the top shelf
for when you’re feeling groovy
and the bath water boils

emil nolde
    and the dancing lady
go bananas in the background
