dope dreams

this morning I had a dream
of fixing a shot
from 4mg of hydromorphone
with an old friend
 
I mashed the tiny white pill
into fine powder
anticipating the rush
as I began to top the spoon off
 
the skies dark,
the window open
some deep breath blew powder from the table;
covering me in dust
 
trying to contain it,
I laughed nervously
hoping my friend would not be offended
that I didn’t care what had happened

Anti-Apathy #67:

It’s not that I don’t care. I care.
But I don’t really care much about not caring.
And I don’t care about caring, either.
I try to exercise an acceptable level of caring
so you don’t care too much about me not caring.
