I take no poison

I take no poison
[shown by leaps
& bounds across
sudden ditches]

& you’ll see me –
flung with limbs
slung wide [as if
nearly flying up]

but it is balance
I am after – Now
I take no poison
with my waking

since clearing a
loose cabinet of
dangerous stuff
[of poisonous &

suspect drugs] –
an addiction for
all to see at that
time [in my life]

with old shouts
set in wax in my
ears – but now I
hear no ferities

about each pill –
my prescription
reads Nil – I now
take no poisons
