The Fix

Give me the moment
that will join me to myself
in a mad embrace


Los Angeles–1

Full moon.
I bolt my door–
as up the ancient stairs
cocaine shadows glide…


Los Angeles–2

I bring a can of weed.
Grady brings pills and peyote
Party Time!


The Bust

A knock, the door
flumps down.
Shotguns, the heat screams–
Freeze you dirty dopers!


Visiting Day

My wife!
I tell her I got the joint.
She is too loaded
to answer.
