Ohhhhhhh baby, take a nip

off the top of this deep grey

syrup, pour some milk

in this bowl of paint flakes

so you can hear them snap

crackle and pop, I’m not

trying to be funny, I’m not

trying much of anything these

days, it’s only natural, this

is how the Romans did it, baby,

grape wine, cherry wine,

strawberry wine surprise,

I don’t give a fuck as long

as you spike it with that good

old defructum, I like my spirits

neurotoxic, I like my spirits

whispering in my ear and drawing

blue lines on my gums in crayon,

let’s have a party, let’s start a fire,

let’s build an addiction in a day.
