By: Kelly Fiore
If she were a verb, it would be “bloom.”
That’s how she feels when she enters my bloodstream. Like she’s blossoming outward through my veins, petals raining from the sky like some kind of doped-up flower girl in a wedding held just for me and my fix.
I don’t usually call her by her given name, but when I do, I always add the “e” at the end.
Tonight, she’s in my pocket as I’m shuffling along the pavement, my Chucks scraping each crack in the sidewalk like there’s nothing I want more than to break my mother’s back. It’s not really that—I just don’t think I can lift my legs any higher. Once I get back to my room, I’ll try to take my time. I’ll try to enjoy setting up my rig, cooking the dope, drawing its juices up into the syringe. I’ll try not to rush the process, my heart in my throat, my pulse racing like I’m about to discover first love or the New World.Kelly Fiore has a BA in English from Salisbury University and an MFA in Poetry from West Virginia University.
