"A Morning in Addiction" by Kim Bratton


Chasing and yet never catching.

Waking again on this lifeless treadmill designed to do and accomplish one goal.

Chase the dragon & feed the hunger of crack and heroin addiction

Maybe 24 hours, maybe 3 or 4 days.

I've been up and moving through those grey days before, for, almost a week.

Anyway the only colors I see are the flames touching, heating, crackling transparent glass

the color of blood red.

Have not seen sun, sky, moon or stars. Only the flame.

Everyday praying its the last day
