The Addict Renames the Days
This day is called Screamed myself hoarse at him
while I sat naked and fat on the futon.
The next day is called He punched his fist through
the wall and I kissed his broken knuckles.
The next is called I am too stoned to remember to
move when someone fucks us.
The next day is not called anything.
The next day is called My head is a snow globe
that’s been set on fire and is cracking.
This is followed by the day of Vomiting and regret.
The final day is I’m leaving you and getting a real life,
then the week starts over.
