Slip me in like a pill,

ride these waves, this thrill.
We are supplements

to sensations, swimming

upstream; salmon fighters,

fresh for flesh,

eager igniters.
Lick these lips,

take me; this pill,

me green and you blue,

there is no choice,

addiction is not a selection

but a devouring infection.
You are base now

to my blood now,

steaming now. See us:

hooked before we’d even

swallowed each other whole.
