side affects

poem and photo by Katy © 2008

did that just happen?

did vomit just exit my body
through my sinuses?

ok, that was new.

the kind of thing that only happens
to people cool enough to join
British Punk Bands.
like Sid and Nancy or
Jimmy Hendrix, who chocked
on his own vomit, and died.

the kind of gross tale that
always kept me from doing drugs.

i never wanted to know
the pain of acid running threw my nose.
is this what it is like to snort crack?

it's weird to KNOW
that this is even possible.

not just a story
told by survivors of Studio 54,
its a sick, bizarre, twisted oddity
and i still feel the burn.
