“Akathisia”

rocking back and forth

i am compelled to

move, this inner

restlessness goading me

on, one of the fringe

benefits of the pills

i take, feeling a bit

like a madman from

a bad movie, i

simply cannot sit

still for very long,

taking another pill

to calm me and

bring stillness to

my weary body, pills,

pills and more pills
