at work, eating a zero bar

The grip behind my eyes
and all eyes
is tighter now than it was
when we were children

candy bars are shrinking
and somehow my gut has expanded
with this less-real food

yet I can’t help but notice
these pills are so novel:
shapes and sizes galore!

I spend my evenings
filling med cups with an anti-schizophrenia bouquet
and showering nude men
who sometimes piss on me
