“Stab me once, shame on you…”
says my shrink-friend, voting for divorce
over patching up, while we grill a ton of meat
for his umpteen teenage offspring,
“…fewer punctures = better.”

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.
