73. In the room

Can you get crack ? I say.
I wanna smoke crack.
In for a penny…
Yes, says Anna.
I give her $40.
She goes.
I’m left in the room alone.
What the fuk am I doin ?
First ice.
Now crack!
I ain’t done drugs in 25 years.
Not class A.
Not even a joint.
Not even a cigarette.
Talking of fags, Anna left a packet of Camels on the bed.
I light a cigarette.
How long will she be?
I sip from a can of Angkor.
It’s hot.
I hit the switch for the fan.
It rattles into noisy action.
I’m horny.
I go to the door, look through the spy hole.
Turn to the mirror.
See myself high on ice for the first time.
My pupils are huge.
They fill my whole eyes.
My eyes are black.
Black saucers.
Like dustbn lids.
Anna’s been gone 10 minutes already.
How long will she be?
