Of course, I could just run out to the drug store.

Oh, Woe!!!


Oh, woe,

addiction being tested.

In need of a shower

out of those clothes

into the shower…

Dressed then,

then but…?

Lost and

couldn’t be found!

Addiction being tested.

Digging in the hamper

pockets turned out


Oh, woe,

woe is me!



bottom to top:

beneath the bed

behind the dresser.

Oh, woe!

Addiction being tested,

addicted since nine,


no never without,

Oh, woe,

woe is me!

Addicted since nine

never without


Never without!

Lips now cracking

blood coming soon

need a Chapstick fix!

Oh, Where

oh where is it?

Oh, woe

need a Chapstick fix,

oh, woe!

Made me chuckle, Mark! Excellent cascade of wondering, so micro-materialized as a simple chap stick. Sentient and funny, oh, woe!

Very funny. My mom and Eileen have similar afflictions. In a pinch, vaseline. Patrick

Now that is an addiction! I never used the stuff, even at thirty below when I was a kid and the air was about 10% humidity. My lips got a little dry, but never cracked like other kids.

Delightful! It is a marvelous thing to hear of other human beings' addictions. Mine is nail clippers. I do that same panic search for nail clippers because every tiny unsmoothness of cuticles is like the pea under the 25 mattresses. Thanks for this comforting confession! ~~ Diana
