He & She:
The way I see it, clear as day
I don’t need those joints passed
in secluded circles at house parties
or dank alleys, nor the brownies
that make you feel fuzzy and odd.
I am calm and fuzzy enough.
“It opens up your mind, you should draw
or write,” They said like teachers to amateurs.
But they were none the wiser
Drifting higher off of nothing but cheap thrills
When I did the same, I learned
the truth was that I could imagine, write
and draw all along.
My mind had always been open.
