Electrolyte Roulette

No comments


Stand. Move. Collapse

Drink potassium

Collapse. Correct the hypo

Sweat through the calcium

Piss out the potassium

Sleep off the magnesium

Fight for oxygen

Trick the renal distal tubular

Drink from a rock pool (St Mark’s Solution)

Correct the pH of the blood

Assuage the disgruntled and flickering heart

Collect 15mg of codeine and pass go

Today I read, ‘Devotion’, so I didn’t lose my fucking mind. Reading Patti Smith was pure indulgence, like a luxurious and beautifully presented breakfast in bed, but served alone at that hotel in The Shining.

St Marks Solution – makes one litre

6 teaspoons glucose powder

1 level 5ml teaspoon of table salt

1 heaped 2.5ml teaspoon of sodium bicarbonate

1 litre tap water
