Weird (s)Hit

It was the weirdest hit I’d ever taken.

Some grade “A” acid shit cooked up in a military laboratory, or so the rat-faced bum said, y’know – back when Uncle Sam was getting fucked a long time down Saigon way.

“Will take you off the fucking scale, man, you won’t know what to believe.”

I’m not sure he could believe it when I grabbed his foil wrap and took off. That’s the kind of cold-sweating, bowel-wrenching fuck-up I’d become.

One man’s high is another man’s misery.

Back in my ends I was flying, like really tripping. House plants were talking to me, the walls bleeding. It was really bad shit. I couldn’t make out the crazy stuff from the reality.

I mean, why the fuck was that weird flying fist getting bigger and bigger?

And that’s when it hit me.

“You stole my shit, man!”

    I can absolutely hear the voice of the kid that sold the acid to the character. (Will take you off the fucking scale, man, you won’t know what to believe.)

    That’s the kind of cold-sweating, bowel-wrenching fuck-up I’d become. Love the description.

    A very good read.

    ha ha ha… I asked a room full of people yesterday if I was the only person to never try acid. A resounding “yes” came back at me. This is great… lots in this short.

  • Thanks Z Lady! Just say no, take it from me!
