consumers now

Psychiatry 3: After Asylum – Poem 36


in the game
they’re referred to now
as consumers
with services delivered
to a place called home

but I used to know them
a little better than that

they were
ella and ferdie and max
and eddie and pinky and b-ee-ill

they’re long gone now
and never come to mind
except on visits
to deserted day-rooms
and haunted dormitories
