Social IV

We have sunsets
but color
wasn’t enough

we have
man/woman
man/man
woman/woman
woman/man

but it wasn’t enough

animal/man
man/computer
bcuz
aforementioned options
were not enough

we have poppy fields
but heroin
wasn’t enough

an empty bottle
wasn’t enough

coke in the nose
wasn’t enough

smoke in the lungs
wasn’t enough

tab on the tongue
was not enough

so we began to mainline
multiple identities
via social IV

severed
we may never disconnect

sweating
shaking
writhing upon
cold tiled floors

aching for more
our
blood is rusted
by what
we so lust for

virtue & vice
how many friends
how many likes
who we have caught
in this virtual net

deifying
social ID
bedridden, scratching at IV

please unplug me
set me free
