42. Phone. Pawn Shop. Pipe.

As my friend leaves he asks me to loan him a dollar.
I say I don’t have any money to give.
Which is true.
But he can keep the charger.
I don’t need it.
I’ve already smoked my phone.
My beautiful Samsung J6.
Meth smokers, they’re always asking for a dollar.
And they’ve rarely got a phone.
They might have a ten dollar Nokia but not a smartphone.
Not unless it’s got a cracked screen.
Not unless its so old and smashed up its unpawnable.
If its pawnable, it’s in the pawn shop.
Which is the same as saying it’s in the pipe.
Phone. Pawn shop. Pipe.
Phone. Pawn shop. Pipe.
Phone. Pawn shop. Pipe.
Fish game.
Oh…and fish.
Don’t forget the fish game.
The money-munching, poverty-inducing, brain cell murdering, soul torturing fish game.
