High Poison

She steeps in conversational poison

Endless exhausting barrage

Escapades recounted

Congratulatory stories

Highs sought and attained

Stashes saved

Anticipating post-jail celebrations

Callous, entitled use of others,

Gains money on books or a casual fuck

Excused, justified, delighted in

Selfish narcissism personified.

First high, last high

Worst high, best high

Highs with her, highs with him

Highs with you, highs with them

Highs here, high there

Highs nearly everywhere

Highs October, November, December

Highs not remotely remembered

Bizarre permutation on Dr. Suess

Round and round, duck, duck, goose.
