I'm tired of omeprazole and all the other cytochrome p450 substrates, inhibitors and inducers


Darin's apartment in Boston | October 7, 1995

I'm tired of omeprazole,
cimetidine, fluoxetine,
norfluoxetine (and goddamned grape fruit juice)
tired of all the substrates, inhibitors, and inducers
of some important
cytochrome P450 isoenzymes
maybe I should know them
maybe I shouldn't
but right now,
I don't want to
there is enough information
to satiate
the most voracious
obsessive-compulsive
mental appetite
but it is cold and damp
and I haven't slept well the past 2 nights
I've got a bad tender point between
my right scapula and spine
my mind is hazy
and I feel sweaty
the black beans are good,
but me,
I am ill at ease
