Sober or Nah?

detox-pathways-e1411681365440

Gnashing at dry scalp with a wig.
Dandruff fractures off
To mingle with snow.

From identity (though disguised)
Births an infant question,

Starved by community
Plagued by abortions.

Obscurity conceals
What flesh carries.

And I should,
Should, Should

Stop offering alcohol to transients-
But detoxification
Smells like sulfur.
Heaven burns brightest
When splashed with gasoline.

Paling light cascades through tunnel vision
At the end expecting nirvana,
Not florescent lights.
