I Am Lock-In

I Am Lock-In
Beginning 2009 my junkie laid eyes upon me
He cannot get me out of his mind
Cannot stop gazing at me
How do I get out of this permanent lock-in?
I need a NYCHA maintenance worker to break open his mind
I have a work order and push the job through with the Superintendent
He responds: “demolition expert and dynamite” and “when I get Alzheimer’s”
What does it take to remove me from my junkie’s mind?
