Morphine Spoon

Calibrated dropper
Measured Innocence
Prescribed dose dulling pain

Solution of Morphine
Alchemist anaesthetic
Greek God Morpheus opium

We gave them our spoon
Told them of a Dream
Told them of Truth

Mary Todd Lincoln
Abe's wife addicted
Morphinism slept with the President

Society of Apothecaries
We dispensed runes
Symbols engraved on morphine spoons

It wasn't long until
Poppy flower sedated endorsement
Self-dosing under the sun of Dog Days

She who must go under the scrutiny of the knife
Be cut into and viciously lanced
Falls asleep

The rape of the nostrils
She will soon Awaken
To All-That-Is

Morphine spoon
Transforms into a sponge
Passed frequently under her nostrils

Solution of Morphine
Washed into the wound
We are the group dispensary made with spirit

I find morphine very creepy. Perhaps it's because of the very atmospheric and chilling song by the Rolling Stones, Sister Morphine. There's something very Alice about anaesthesias... the dispenser has total control over where you fall asleep; where and, more importantly, WHEN you wake up. That being the case, your whole world can be manipulated by suggestion of your being where and when you're not. Compelling poem that stimulates rather than dulls! :)) xx

Erudite and sharp, Sage; reading this is enough drug for me...high and light on your great words.

The warmth of gray cotton embraces me. The sun shines through a velvet haze of puce. This tarry bitch nestled in my spoon knows I love her without compromise. This relationship is overt, no guise, my sleepy eye lids see with renewed clarity. Only without her is there disparity. Though I never have and never had the desire to. Those I have known describe the black tarry substance as I have related. Sage, you wonderful woman there is more magic here than I could conjure up in a season of poems. I bid you love and peace my dear friend. Jon Michael

opiate of the masses. hermann goering was quite fond of this stuff too. hell, what's not to love. until one becomes a slave to it, that is. terrific piece. i'd say your poetry though is better than a morphine drip any day of the week. more, more please. i'll dump my computer at the pawn shop, just please one more poem. i swear it's the last time :-)
