Michael Marrotti- A Poem


How many
can one
gmail receive

Just saying no
may be easy
for them

But with these
black market
discounts I
find it incredibly
hard to bypass

Maybe if they
were under
the influence
of a mind altering
in my direction
this poem
would be

Kindred souls
making credit card

The black market
would flourish
as consumers
said arrivederci
to boredom

I send my
to my dealer
Green eyes
never deny

Being under
the influence
is often

This submission
is down the toilet
at one with my
first narcotic shit
of the day
