down

yesterday
despite the literature on the matter
yesterday
all my troubles seemed so close
there was nothing to be done
only so much that a
morning tablet
can protect me from
make-up dragged across
to paint a picture
of contentment
then so soon after
melted
into rivulets of
saturday afternoon
meltdowns
