You Say I’m Your favorite drug?

You say I’m your favorite drug?

Then I will die with every dose,

So rush baby rush!

My illusions will never be more beautiful!

The Way

One way to do it, he says, is to douse yourself in
alcohol and set your bed on fire.

In the hole men chew their veins out; now that’s
ambition!

These are lectures on Blood and the Way.

With God’s love we are never abandoned.

He is the way and a way out

–unlock–pull trigger–

“I’m a hustler, he says, I never go back to
the same trick twice for a cigarette!”

As a finale we laugh ourselves to death.

Art by Rob Goldstein
perhaps

perhaps

in the seconds

before I am in
my body

before I wake

into shifting

realities

 

when I
bring my

hands

to

my chest
and fold my
fingers

into each

other

perhaps

then

we are

One person
Under God
Indivisible–

what I want is

the kindness
of humility;

perhaps

acceptance

in

a clear

and civil

tone

of

voice.
