the NP asked
how I was feeling
with the new med
 
much better
I said
I’ve stopped crying
 
after 3½ years
the cosmos
had cocked its ears
lined the right letters
P–T–S–D
in the right order
 
she didn’t ask if
I felt happy, only said
she was recommending
medical marijuana
for the physical pain
 
I guessed her at
5 or 6 months along
there’s no competing
with that degree
of happy
 
so it’s just as well
she hadn’t asked
