Who isn’t medicated,
Though — from coffee to crumbling
Donuts to Dextro-meth-orphan. One
Person buys video games, another
Is knee-deep in guns. Are
They not addicts, at some level, needers
Who get what they want, only to have
The same vacant place spill back open,
dark? Seriously, tell me, who
Isn’t medicated in some way, who doesn’t
Awake to some yawning need, seeking
Some external thing to alter the
Chemistry just for a few minutes, days,
Where none of this is
And vague.

I write stuff when something begs to me to write. The goal is to write ten-thousand things before I die. I tend to be morbid, reflective and personal.
