White Album

We’d been waiting for it for months.
I went to someone’s dorm room to hear.
We sat on pillows and listened
to the whole thing!

An hour or so in, someone
walked around our circle
giving out Orange Sunshine pills.

“What a nice party,”
I thought. How nice
to ingest my pill
where I felt
so comfortable.

Half an hour later
the party broke up.
I rode my bike back
to my off-campus apartment

and lay awake all night
struggling to survive
the terrible forces
surging from within me.
