“Rachel, these poems are awesome.” —Blake Butler

“I have many mood rings!” —Dorothea Lasky


Every time my pills fall, I feel very much
like an addict

when they scatter it is disapproving
they dance on the hardwood
they rest on the carpet

it is maddening to spill pills across a restaurant floor
children clap
women are exhilarated
I want to lie on my rug and self-reflect
by my hair goes limp
I  am late for the train

spilling pills makes me feel like I have a stressful, high-
profile job
that I really have no time to pick up anything
I have too many young kids
the landline is crammed between my cheek and shoulder
like a sex addict
like i have a shoplifting problem
or I’ve borrowed people’s kids
despised people’s pets
