    things change

    ah

    here it is

    i’ve been expecting
    it
    for a few weeks
    now

    the question
    for the
    hour
    day
    week
    maybe even a month

    is
    it possible
    for
    chemicals
    to bludgeon
    the ravening
    beast
    back into
    its
    cage?

    when you
    stop using drugs
    to
    amuse
    distract
    emotionally numb
    yourself

    and instead
    depend
    on them
    to keep
    hard
    crushing
    savage
    physical
    pain
    at bay

    when
    the
    euphoria
    amusement
    numbness
    disoriention
    coolness
    status
    are
    removed

    and
    all you
    end up
    wanting

    is
    to be
    at peace

    and
    not
    in agony

    and
    to keep
    your brains
    wrapped
    in their
    cradle of bone

    you
    have to wonder

    what’s next after this?

    i fear the answer
