when I felt all hope was gone
and Eddie to his credit
mumbled heartfelt support
like it wasn’t 3 a.m.
in Detroit, Michigan.

Todd Mercer coined the popular culture term “high-tracked” (becoming side-tracked from one’s stream of thought due to being high) and wrote a digital chapbook, Life-wish Maintenance, which appears at Right Hand Pointing.
