Junky: A drunken quotation in lyric

by maddrunkgenius

“I heard a laugh behind me on the street.
It was a junky laugh.
You know, like when you’re waking from a dream &
Make a noise that sounds like from far away.
He was right behind me
But out of reach.”

And later:

“My cousin overdosed
About a year ago
Like April.
I started writing a poem about her after.
It was about how when you’re cooking up heroin
It smells like vinegar
And how you find God in it
and the smell.”

“It’s like Easter eggs.”

“Hmm?”

“It smells like when you dye Easter eggs.”

“Yeah.
And there’s no God there.
You’re just dyeing.”

“Ha.”
