Addiction: Middle Management of Capitalism

exertion charred
lungs feel good
after branding,

though
spin class is
actual hell.

endorphins,

you are
not booze
or coffee,

but you
are okay
[for now]

suddenly
there is
so much
more to do.

Not addiction
constrained
to certain
locations

everywhere
is a place
to be;

my body,
unhooked
from IV

free to
explore.
