Smoking instead of eating,
Gloom alone remained
Pierced by shafts of blazing light.
What you said to me took me aback.
Who, after all, has better taste?
I knew the tiny crystal phial was three parts full.
The medicine made me sleep and
The warehouse burned down in the night.
The feeling of our last union was exceedingly odd,
A combination of lover and old friend
You’ve got those qualities so cherished by so many
Like a public park.
You can boost your chances of having a healthy brain later in life
An unexpected benefit to eating less.
