A Junkies Lament

I just want to smash something –
To just unleash fury
For a split moment.

But the reality scares me –
I’m not sure
I’d know what to do with it.

What if I bow to mother reality
And find the comfort of kneeling
Too nice to give up?

What then?
I can’t smash time indefinitely
Without smashing me.

What do I do
When I stand
And am back in this wristwatch world?

I’ll take this smashing fury
And channel it inward
Into some other avenue

Into some other avenue, street, bus or lane
Where it can seek assistance
In the comfort of a vein.
