vitamins


i
started taking vitamins for you, you know.
relaxed my throat like you relax your chest, your ribs fall neatly into place
when they touch my spine like a quieted kitten curling 
against a ticking clock. 
you think my clock is ticking, sometimes, and worry of it.
you worry about my smoking or the fact that i hate
drinking water, how i don't run.
according to some website i will die
on September 16th, 2058 at 67 years old; 
September 16th, 2058 is a Thursday
and i am okay with that.
besides, i doubt you'd want a forever with me
anyways

but i love you and 
i started taking vitamins for you, 
which is a lot
for me.
