Poem: Welcome to the Suck 

Welcome to the Suck

I'm quitting cigarettes, probably
until I start drinking again.
I like butts.

Thad says, "That's
okay, Jimmer." But
he always says that,
like a wired reply.

So I sit on the porch in the winter,
and the sky looks trippy
sometimes when I'm not on drugs.

—Jim Hegmegee
