Comment on this article

by Aurora Antonovic

Youíve become
A bad habit
Like Coke
First thing in the morning,
Or endless bottles of
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
