October mess

i overdosed twice since October
its hard enough just to stay sober.

Review Request (Direction): 
What did you think of my title?
How was my language use?
What did you think of the rhythm or pattern or pacing?
How does this theme appeal to you?
How was the beginning/ending of the poem?
Is the internal logic consistent?
Editing stage: 


STOP doing that! You do NOBODY any good in a casket

The bitch had shot up the last of our smack while i was asleep.
Next to me.
We had been fucking a few hours before.
That felt weird.

She was clearly very dead so I bolted and called an ambo from a payphone.
It could have been me. Or you.
I presume heroin or some other opiate, most other things are hard to OD on.

Talk to me by PM. I have truly done it all, even died twice. So fucking talk to me.

Whatever pain you are medicating I promise I can find you something safer.

A new workshop on the most important element of poetry-
