The Addict

 

Now and then

On rainy nights,

I smash the glass

Of the old chemist shop

Hidden in the lane.

I search

The corners

And crevices,

Its shelves

And cabinets,

For this and that.

For butterflys and string,

Christmas cards

And candles,

Paper dolls

And tincture of cancer,

To cure my pain.

And then rush

To catch

The winter's night's

Last train.
