(Because sometimes the only way to truly express your feelings is through poetry…Apologies to e.e. cummings…)

 

Levaquin i love you
because you can help cure all these crazy ass
diseases including anthrax and the plague
and it’s not many antibiotics that can say they do

that and because you
unflinchingly list all
the common side effects and
not so common ones that would scare a man on death row

Levaquin i love you because
you work pretty damn well for a sinus infection
even if i am forced to be up all night when
i take you and in the

morning i get to sleep in the daylight and
because you are continually giving
me new side effects like headaches and dizziness
especially because this time i need you for ten days

Levaquin i love you because you
make it so i can’t take Advil without a higher
risk of seizures and the list of deadly side effects
seems to get longer each time i check it out

on the paperwork
that came home with you from the pharmacy
including the fear
of combusting in the sunlight Levaquin

i hate you
