Talk Radio

Talk Radio, 2AM by Ricahrd M. Berlin MD

I’m driving home from the ER,
not ready for sleep, eaten up
by memories of my mistakes,
a man on the radio telling me
not to worry because I can learn
to control my mind. He says
thoughts are like puppies
we can paper-train and teach
to be obedient. He says
one day that puppy will calm down,
cuddle up, and lick my face.
But who is this guy kidding?
My mind isn’t a puppy tonight —
it’s a wild tiger,
and it’s ripping out my heart.
