A Way to Pretend


Filling our stomachs

again and again.

The substance,

to us,

is a way to pretend.  

The poison we swallow

to be able to wallow

in the luxury

of a blackout party.  

It’s so easy to slip

into a wasted bliss

when it’s a social event

with your so-called friends…

but what is that really?
