The 9 ½ %

by Ben Rasnic  

“9 ½ % of Americans suffer from depressive disorders”
—United States Center for Disease Control  

I turn my back
against the pre-
dawn light creeping
thru shrouded drapes,

find solace
solely in deep,
uninterrupted sleep.      

Every day
is a never-ending
monotonous cycle
of non-events.                                              

Take one capsule
daily, wait seven years
for the FDA to acknowledge
adverse effects.

green mold engraves
the vinyl siding        
like a tombstone.
