The other day whilst passing through Grafitti Alley, in Toronto, I happened across some colourfully dressed persons with a dog. Without casting prejudice, one of the street folk was clearly very high and having a particularly nasty trip; to the huge contentment of their dog who jumped around playfully. I tried to imagine what it would be like to be high in this alley and frankly, it would be terrifying.
Smiling faces, colourful,
Screaming, screeching, wonderful!
But don’t you see they want it all?!
They just want to eat.
Blended, blurry, I’m the feast,
Now im fucked I’ll feed the beast,
Till all is bone and I’m deceased,
They will eat me whole.
