Like electric eels coursing through my veins
the poison prompted my heart to pump even more blood
past proximal organs to all points perceptible by me.
I could feel it in my big toe.
I took another sip. Then a drag.
Lifting off like airplanes on landing strips
I left earth, loving every second of it.
Leaving behind the littered bodies of peoples on starlit street corners down below.
Smiling from ear to ear, I took another sip of coffee and said to my friend, come see what it feels like from up here.
