Senior Complaint

I have an underlying health condition
cause unknown, like addiction
to Aunt Nora or Widow Jane,
a thing always
just out of reach, yeah
seeking either
as I’m a dealer, is insane
but when deprived
I feel something, something is
seriously wrong with this
ragtag raging world, oh sin
oh sympathy, I have that too, for all
who have it,
why the hell do you imagine
I scribble remedies
that may never keep if I succumb
to those with so little—digressions
words, words
are hungry beggars
but poems dream
something near perfection,
alongside whatever else
we bring to life—yikes
Doctors say work out, get good sleep
don’t drink so much,
there is no cure
but meditation is like nice and easy–
take care not to give it to the kids or wife
for the time being
two Bayer for the pain, lots of water
will help unclog the brain,
positive thinking, belief
check out a twelve-step program
just talkin’ is relief
when you’re Jonesing for justice and peace.
