parable of an inventive junkie

000000 me is woe / went to scō / but po-po at tha’ dō / ask / “where you
go?”

act dumb / “is jojo home? / got weeds /// need hoe.”

000000 po-po say / “jojo don’t live here no mō // you get ghost // ’cause
this crack-house is closed /// & you cain’t scō.”

000000 / “thank you ossifer.”

000000 / then i go // i be gonna-git-gone!! // two dōs down /
live joe j. snow. // booyah! . . . i scō!!

000000 / get high as hell /// fuck damn po-po! / an’ they ‘maginary
/ drug wō.
