Exile    poems by Matthew Freeman February 2021

Prescription Authority

You would do well
to remind yourself
of all those times walking around
and thinking,
“I need help.”

Because now
when you’re at the family reunion
they’re all like,
“Matt’s the one with the diagnosis
but he’s the sanest of us all.”

You would do well
to figure out
how that happened.
