Treasure Island

Justin Tallman

(September 4th,1989 / Milwaukee, WI)

The day after cocaine


The day after cocaine
The mystery of shame
Expressing with a broken face
cracked from the nose
Hear the chorus go flat
No chance of rewind
It happened in the attic
The event of following lines
Sniffling after snorting
Snorting before sniffling
Somewhere in Central America
I made a cartel
happy

Poem of the Day
