"I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me."
Hunter S. Thompson

i will go out
in a blaze of ugly
candle burning,
both ends aflame
shoving corn dogs
in my face,
smoking big cigars,
watching disgusting porn
in a cheap motel
holding onto the
handicapped rails
in the shower,
waiting for the sweet chariot
to swing low enough
'for to carry me home.'
but, instead,
it hovers
daring me
to jump.
