‘swallowing his own funeral’

standing in the bathroom
blood running into the sink
attention on colours and shapes
counting out the different ones
those for sleep
and those for pain
those that calm him
and the ones for his messed up brain
one by one they disappear
he wonders how many it will take
and swallows again
having lost count
