Dead as a Doornail

Don't like the drugs, but the drugs like me

Holding up the doorframe of my life.
inspiration's forest
          was not as sound a sleeper
          as we thought
slicing wrists and cut lines
          never did nobody no good
or so it seems to these three coathangers
newsprint on my forehead.
all in a bad time
          considering what's left of
          my ink
