One word, my love,
the only drug I need.

It floats me down
through spooling darkness.

The bed seems somewhere,
land in pieces.

In your throat,
let it take you

right up toward the ceiling.
Say once --

don't swallow it --
let me hear

you throw it out,
and take it back.

Again, again,
through the sweat

of evening
to daylight's grasp.

One word, my love.
Draw it slow...

Oh please, now.
Let it go.

Thank you both. This was a fun, late-night lapse of reasoning, logging into pip to post.
