Enter Dragon

The subtlety of medicinal mist is tempting
But eventually, inevitably, I need direct the sting
Of the needle puncturing my vein, infusing
Immediate, immaculate, this drug called life, enticing
Suggestion, innuendo, only goes so far till fading
A touch, a pinprick, direct connection, humming
From injection outward coursing through, infecting
I will chase the dragon, passion, always hunting
Even if it takes me down, I will go revved up, buzzing

–A.R.

I cannot remember how I found this image, or its  title.
If be when I track it down I will cite it properly.
Apologies to the artist.
