Needing a certain drug is a
cold way to start the day
pulling you out of bed bleary eyed

Walking around town trying to find a
safe guy to hook you up can take hours

impatience arguing with paranoia
suspicion arm wrestling with need

Time is irrelevant as are
friends, money or pride.

Needing a certain drug is a
twenty four hour job
an occupation that pays nothing,
a treadmill with handcuffs,
lined with razor blades.
