Pill

 

Oh, no, please,

not so many problems:

only two or three!

Beautiful, complicated,

even distressing,

but only two or three,

please.

 

A problematic little couple

to walk on those days

of frayed nerves,

with  big headaches

amusingly tied up in a ponytail

with a little ribbon, she,

and the little shipwrecked sailor dress

and the hoop of spinning

all around, he,

by Desolation Row.

 

Understand it,

I am only a poet,

that kind of disconcerting idle.

 

Excuse me, therefore,

for taking the controversialceptive pill.
