White-knuckled workhorse
twelve hours
of withdrawal
from his warmth

Twenty-five minutes
and fifty-five dollars
his favorites
boxed and bagged
courtesy of
her credit card

Stagnant
lemmings
for miles
liquid bullets
ping plop
squeak swipe

Alabaster autobahn
gravel mud
sling scrape
screech lock
puddle jump
buoyant beam

vacuum sealed denim
scrapes concrete
footprint freedom

sop flap
door squeak

whiplash
icy flames lick leap
north south east west

acrid burnt air
HCl has defied gravity

emetophobe
descent to hell

two styrofoam boxes
single slice
shrink wrapped
surprise
to share

gut churns

salt droplets
trickle fire
scalp to soles

rodent gnaws
punctures this time
she swats it away
defending denial

Eggshells crack
sticky eyelids
unhinge
dilated gaping chasm

Feet bash linoleum.
Blurred limbs hurl

dissociation
subconscious sanctuary

whir
thud
barn dust
ruby splotches
percolate
porcelain dΓ©colletage

burning numb
grasp lift stuff
shuffle sprintΒ Β 
wince

stagger
wobble
curses slur
face plant

pocket purges
orange cylinder
ping bounce roll
Halt.
hollow
label-side up
opioids. and that was all.
