fragility of the brain

the neurons eventually stop transmitting.
year after year of drug use (not abuse)
has decimated what’s left of my brain
and since it’s amazing I’ve lived this long,
I consider it a win.

ever been around older folks with dementia or alzheimer’s?
i’ll end it before that time comes for me,
but then i realize that it may have
already arrived and i just don’t know it.

so, anyways, the neurons eventually stop transmitting.
year after year of drug use (not abuse)
has decimated …

wait, where am I?

Recently moved back to the States after living 16 months in Vietnam. I write to remove the thoughts trapped in the cobwebs of my psyche before the spider envelopes me whole.
