Getting High

Selfie, Alice R.

There’s a party going on

clear icy liquid ampules prescribed

I share the nebulizer with my girl

it sends us into a steamy misty paradise

from the tip of our lips

to the bronchioles of our souls

one seven-percent solution at a time

one breath and then the next

slowly we feel our tightness opening

our spirits lifting, worries released

the spell is broken

the axe of Hendrix shatters

stoking the internal fires

warming our cold hands and hearts

we can finally dream again

one breath and then the next

as the world rotates around us

one inhale, one exhale

as the medicine mist slowly dissolves

into our bodies

into the night air.
