“Huxley, Aldous”

Carly Xagas

 

Lazy Saturday
dissolving like
alka-seltzer tablets

 

in city water. Behold: the escape
a hot toddy
Huxley's soma

 

lethargy and body
collide
army-crawling below

 

death like you like
but not like I like;
incomplete

 

a sentence without ending or punctuation
like
