Petrified, am I

One never thinks of the clean up crew

when littering their lives

with expectations.

But pushing a broom around

after slobs like you…

Drugs are terrifying.

It’s not the being high,

it’s being high and then getting it all right.

had a strangle hold on the game,

but I broke * through.

In the Atlas room,

with two fingers strangling a balloon,

bird-dogging a Masters from a saloon.
