all these drugs that pollute us
amplify and mute us
subvert us, divert us
mend us and hurt us

kill us
fulfill us
convince us we’re living
enhance us
romance us
illude that we’re free;
debase us
sedate us;
there’s nothing you’re missing
conceal us
reveal us
…and leave us

promise elation
ensuing deflation
like love lost to reason
whats left now feels dry
