i’m waiting for the medicine to kick in

to make me not care

help me not think

give me a “take me away calgon moment”

if you don’t know what Calgon is, you are too young to read this

calgon was back in the good old days

when our dads were fathers we only saw between dinner and bedtime

and our moms wore aprons and stayed at home all day

and drank and smoked

Calgon boxes of bath powder on the bathtub ledge

which must not have been entirely effective

because there were these pills called mother’s little helpers

which I suppose did help

and I could use one of those right now.
