Addiction
by Aurora Antonovic


 
Youíve become
A bad habit
Like Coke
First thing in the morning,
Or endless bottles of
Perrier
I can ill afford
But seem to crave all afternoon
 
Procrastinating, like
Not cleaning the lint screen
Each time I use the dryer
Thinking next time will turn into
This time
 
Reading until two am when
I have to get up at five
 
Skipping supper
 
 Buying sweaters
I know Iíll never wear
 
Collecting toe rings
 
Lip gloss
In every sticky shade
 
Not really needing any of these things
But not wanting to do without either
 
So youíve become, like,
This addiction
 
But I can give you up
Any time I want
 
Yeah Ė
Any time I want
