Popping Xanax bars, snorting Morphine, chugging Johnny Bootleggers in the bathtub. When the guy I was fucking found fresh cuts on the inside of my ankle, he just handed me another pill.

Circling the Drain

I’m an addiction to people looking for a quick fix. They cling to the familiarity of my damage, finding solace in my pain and inhale my every scar like lines of cocaine. I’m their “one last high” before rehab and when someone fails sobriety, they don’t come back… they just find a new drug.

Path to Eden

I stopped going to church years ago, but being alone on Easter in the middle of a pandemic will certainly drive you to find some type of service to watch.

The Fear of God

I’m constantly lighting up. Honestly, I could probably scrape the resin off my lungs and smoke it. Staying stoned is just the only way I can give myself some goddamn peace and quiet.
