just different

A worst nightmare loomed large

notification courtesy Montgomery County
Assistance Office caseworker

implied medical coverage axed

I felt hammered, nailed, shingled out...
livid with rage
frenzied, harried, jarred...
railing away

fit tubby tied to train tracks
ready to kill myself,
but dang, I ain't got enough funds

to cover funeral

or preferably cremation costs.


Bajillion dollars for medications
yikes - anxiety/panic attacks

slated to return with vengeance,

no way to pay hearst driver/
nor burial services
grave diggers will mutiny

unable to calm down

a bottle of tranquilizers...

and/or sharp pointed objects
appeared very tempting

questions needed answering ASAP!


Telephone numbers yielded voice menu

dialed Consumer Service Center

for Health Coverage

at long last - a real person

thank dog.


Whew - informed of short checklist

checking account transactions

backdated to June 2023
until most recent activity

slight sigh of wry tears relief

grace period until August 2023

accessed Citizens account online

of course Login fraught
with problematic issues Yow.


Chose new password

finally accessed anemic

measly anorexic balance

scrolled mouse pointer

highlighted/copied designated dates
pasted said information
into Word document
ah...prints esse finally blessed me
folded half dozen plus pages

affixed three postage stamps
out apartment door
slipped material into onsight mailbox.


Breathed sigh of relief

agitation subsided within core

rage against human machine (me)

penuriousness smarted, vetted, yipped...
analogous to pet peeve
emotionally exhausted and spent

penniless poet plopped into bed
instant sleep refreshed
highly cooled figurative heels
subsequently resumed hashtagging
black and decker tooled mindset
concomitant with grievous bitterness


decried flagrantly mucking potential
squandered so many
prime vocational opportunities
severely compromised thank you;
loathsome debilitating panic attacks
years gone by;

voluntarily enrolled institutions,

albeit of higher learning

hopscotched from one college/

university after another

work history record scattershot
unable to sustain employment


intermittent jobs between

prolonged gaps, deemed
expendable, replaceable, unmarketable...
great boost to self esteem

qualified to receive
Social Security disability

predicated on serious
mental health issues

to recapitulate incapacitated

presumably congenital aberration

other than above internal melee...,
I feel Gr-r-reat!
