I believe I'll have another dish of ice cream--
a plate of cookies--a bag of pretzels--

fire one up--douse one down--burn in righteousness
and howl as if the sky listened

while my marshmallows incinerate--
food addiction--sex addiction--gambling addiction--

power addiction--nothing to help one feel alive
except being alive--which a sane man would fear

as he'd fear what he thinks is the devil-
i.e. himself...
