Novocain

Feb 1 - 1
Jason Lai 

Poetry is my Novocain

my go to drug when I’m feeling pain

always there in different strains

ready to inject and wrap itself into my thinning veins.

slowly pouring out its sedative,

like waves

allowing my eyes to roll back and see

feel freely

live

and be.

as my fingers glide over the imprints it leaves on my skin

swirling luminescent liquid verses

tattooing my body and soul with

words not yet spoken,

but felt entirely by me.
