"Asylum Acrostic" - Jessica Duger

And they trap you up, wrap you up, and keep you from yourself; the only thing I can do is Stare at the others, far worse off than me; their eyes so beady, their hair frazzled You wonder why you pity them and not yourself, I haven’t seen my reflection in Light years it makes me feel gritty and raw; I calculate strategic exit plans-Because I am so sane  Uniformed nurses with little Dixie cups of chalky pills infiltrate my room every twenty minutes  My instinct says claw the bitch, my intelligence says swipe it under your tongue and smile like you’re making progress
