It’s that thing
that you obsess about
all day long,
try to get
or get to
or get back to.
It’s what you chase,
what you daydream about,
what you’re jonesing for,
what you will beg, borrow, or steal for.
It’s where you’re headed when you
clock out at 5.
It doesn’t matter whether it’s
a dollar
a drug
a drink
a person
a bite
an orgasm
a store
the next episode of that show on Netflix
the next chapter of the book
you are reading
or writing,
we all have something
that’s our first thought when we start the day
and our last thought when we close our eyes at night.
That thing that is killing us or
keeping us alive
or both.
What’s your fix?
