There were more dangerous drugs available
but just upstairs there was a great temptation
Zen claims that rumination
might ruin your life
but be that the case
hand me a knife
to cut up the fruit
and eat it in pieces
that's how it was
in a brain exegesis 
while and ago
time and repeat
taking me back
defeat and defeat
that's what addiction
did to the mind
forgetting the physical
a coffee coarse grind
and yet one day
ago and a week
two things to say
I'm gone and I seek.
