poem challenge: Hardship

Bottles on the brain

Stranded on a desert isle
Raft made of prescription bottles
Watch the orange baubles float
Watch the fish learn how to smile
Falling out of aeroplanes
Parachute made of instructions
Seagulls catching the sweet smell of Zoloft
Falling asleep as it soothes their brains
Left behind at a train station
Little trolley made of boxes
Carrying drowsy-looking doormice
To their final destination
Now I'm living in a hive
Hectacombs of serotonin
Let them fill my heart with honey
Not awake but now alive
