New Addiction

Self-destruction is erotic. The ticking time-bomb type is infinitely more attractive than the girl next door. I prefer the taste of cheap tequila and No. 27s on other girls’ lips. There are sylphs and there are more modern nymphs- those that thrive on neon and glitz. Black lace, dark eyes, losing shoes and stroking thighs- I think I’ve found a new addiction, a Warhol, M.D. prescription.
