My Summer of Junk

I’ve gotten a lot of mileage
outta that one time
I let him spike me
shared and unprotected

I’m lucky, I guess,
some of you motherfuckers
died for not
doing much more than that

puking never felt so good
my summer of chasing dragons
began with that one hit
in which you invited me into the club

“James Brown came to town,
came to get down”
James Brown was his real name
nobody called him Jim

sorry for telling but
no, I’m not
thank you, “Jim,” for introducing me
to my last chance to get it right
