sex and hunger
are our most powerful urges
clearly never tried the stuff I’m on.
This stuff is
teeth on neck
cold static through veins
the piece of me that was always missing.
Need to cut back budget don’t need the
car cable friends
just need to be able to breathe.
We’ll go to dinner soon, my love
need a few more minutes to
no I can drive I’m fine
I just don’t want to.
I have to go
I only need
unless I don’t need them either.
