Now I feel the Ativan working,

putting the dark flock slowly back to sleep. 

Each time there are more of them. 

I know that one time a silly Ativan

will not

be enough to stop them. 

A whole bottle of Ativan

will not stop them. 

They will burst bloody

out of my body

taking the roof off,

blowing out windows and

what will the neighbors say

then?

because they will

barely have time

to register surprise

before the dark mass of wings

lifts them off their own feet

and the scream

they might have heard

would have been their own.
