Poem – The Secret (2006)

The Secret


The Heroin mixed w/ the

Free-Base and apparently I am

Having Blackouts. I say

Apparently since I’ve no

Recollection of — Sacking my

Already “who did it and ran”

Apartment.        The neighbors

Complaining about the loud fights

In my place. I was alone!

I’d surely like to remember if

Someone were there w/ me — Even

A fight to quench this Sahara of

Loneliness I’ve placed myself


Do I have a secret

Life where I am even engaging in

Domestic quarrels? Wouldn’t that

Be civilized! From me though it

Is probably one of a multitude of personalities

Showing off for the others.
