Polysporin

24 October 2018

The miracle cream your mum used to import from
the USA, with the bulk pack of antihistamines
and those throat lozenges
from Italy.

Antibiotic ointment we used to spread on everything.
And overnight we would heal.

I found a tube
Half used and congealed in the cap.
I wore it overnight on the pimples I keep picking.

But it didn’t change anything.
