Through a dense fog, I hear someone
explaining to me repeatedly
how the stockpile of microenzymes
I have built up over the past ten years
will be depleted in five days
while the staff ply me
with Perrier and Imodium
ad nauseum.

j.lewis is a Nurse Practitioner who works in a jail, oversees a lot of detox, but has yet to prescribe any Perrier.
