out the screen door

out the screen door
I can see the moon
yellow as jaundice
drinking wine
that I wish was colder
in a body that I wish didn’t ache
listening to 1st wave ska
and I’m sure the last song
I heard
kept repeating
“a box of ass”
I’m sure it’s wrong
but that’s what I heard
and start trying to imagine
what a box of ass would look like
it was 109 today
and I lowered my dose
of antidepressants
wines almost gone
but there is more beer
hopefully I’ll write more
since the meds
made me a zombie
and unable to do anything
for almost two weeks
the moon is getting higher
maybe I should follow its lead
