deependency

the unquestionable dependency
by itself is the baser sovereign
catered to with despair and care
by any means necessary

the inescapable is indiscriminately coveted
additives to enhance or dampen are a must
too much is just an empty phrase

it’s addiction for its own sake
the junkie mantra reigns on repeat:
I want more life even if it kills me

absolute toxicity
erratic upward shifts in concentration
consistent accumulation ensures
that the lethal amount will be reached
fatality is a vitality overdose

withdrawal calls for ever sharper venoms
disinhibition is the solitary deity

intake is a binary determinant
0 1 no yes none all one zero

dosage is as meaningless a word as infinite

absolute toxicity
erratic upward shifts in concentration
consistent accumulation ensures
that the lethal amount will be reached
fatality is a vitality overdose

I want more life even if it kills me


RIP Rutger Hauer.  No, the poem had nothing whatsoever to do with him or any role he played.  I just wanted to put it here.
