This morning I woke to a memoryTo Jennifer Waller's previous piece     I saw a man with no handsTo Jennifer Waller's next piece


I never did the drugs
But They came for me anyway-
Long nights, sweating, wanting
Needing that fix of pollution-

I lay broken here
And no one notices
As I 
Become nothing but
Want and desire-
For things I never
Dared to taste.

Opiate- 
Wash away my purity
In your flood of indifferent
Consumption.
Let me lie in filth.

The smut thickens-
Youíve left me alone
Too long.

I have learned to 
Die alone
Through nights like this
When you arenít even 
Thinking about me
As I am dying


And she smiles on.
