Venom

Venom

Pull
Up your sweater sleeves
Do not mind the inevitable breeze

Look
Up at the brick alley walls
In this place there is no law

Heat
Up your spoons and bowls
Matches beneath and birds above

Ready
Up your dirtied needles
Find your veins and feed them love

Load
Up the venomous liquid
Inject yourself and feel lifted

Roll
Up your body tight
Hours pass, fade the light

Wake
Up to a cold night sky
Teeth chattering and a mouth so dry

Get
Up and look around
Bums and vagrants abound

Look
Down
At your dirtied hands
This is life, this is your grand plan

This vicious cycle you created
You got too close to the edge
Slipped away into nothing
And faded away
