So Now That It Has Seeped into Us?

He decided

to ease his pain with

the ultimate pain relief:

no side effects,

no worrying about

more prescriptions.

Just hoard the meds and

gulp and gulp and

gulp them down with water.

So the pain stopped for him,

but we have found

that it now flows to us

as we sense the evil

which he spilled

throughout his house

in notes,

in messages

dripping down:

thick black scrawls

on his bedroom wall.

I've been writing mostly poetry for many years and have gotten a number of works accepted in publications and anthologies. I'm most interested in communicating with poets for whom craft is a high priority. I enjoy finding and commenting on poetic gems in other people's work. For my own work, I welcome polite comments, whether positive or critical.
