Become

Stories are created

From realities that have faded,

Already a grasp

To hold onto moments passed.

 

Liquor filled bellies and smoke filled lungs,

Numb nostrils and tabs placed on tongues.

 

I wrote a story once and lived it many times,

I became a poet and lived through my rhymes.

 

What part I play, and who is my figure,

Embodied by day, and nighttime even bigger.

 

I thought of a story,

I lived in a remedy.

 

So light me up, and

Pass me some.

I seek that drug, so

I can become.
