Woo that burns.
Sip on it.
Slowly slides past your teeth.
Bitter, numbing comfort, that gives you indigestion.
On top of those pills.
It also leaves you raped of yourself each time you let it drive.
My stuck-up high school friend once told me that.
Now I'm a lawyer, a banker, a doctor, a baker.
Now and then she posts photos on Facebook of cakes, children, families gleaming in God's holy light.
A tongue trill rings out the next free tequila shots!
I don't even care who I am!
Who gives a fuck!
"I've learned of higher education,
and all it gets are my needs met."
[life fades to black and all is lost].
