07:34 pm - Constant Craving
Now would be a good time to quit,
Said the pharmacist with red hair.
Tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow--
You will feel better.
Yes, I nodded my feverish head
And carried the medicine home . . .
Perfect moments must eventually
Give way to the physical self.
Now I recall dining with the queen,
Laughing at the actors on stage,
Now I recall the polite doorman,
Holding back the heavy door,
Now I recall our evening walks
Dispelling every doubt we had.
But constant craving doubles back
Like a charmed snake;
My heart is never full.
