pandora’s box

doctor doctor give me the news – foto by Smith

Pandora’s Box

She sips rum and coke
Smiles, glows
Says “I like this”
And sips some more

And sips some more

Wakes up weak
Foggy, hurt
Says “I don’t like this”
Goes back to bed

Next time
Same thing

The clock is ticking
Its time face endless
Loop within loop
Same pain drain

In circle rhetorical
Reminds me of me
