the speedfreak

I think drugs are like strawberries. That was something I was very much a part of, but at the same time there’s that incredible nightmare paranoia … it drives human beings crazy. It frightened me to see it around me … I had everything that could be moves stolen by speed freaks. Things began to disappear. The Queen Bee Speedfreaks and Amphetamine Annie had found out where my apartment was. All my jewelry was stolen and all my expensive clothes. Dior, Balenciaga … just tons of originals. By the way, have you heard anything about my furs? Everybody’s wearing them.
