No Need

by Mark Melnicove

Now that Everyone is
dying and there is
Nothing to stop them
hallucinogenics are superfluous.

I do not need Anything
to alter my Mind because
Everything else does
without Exception

Beginning with small
Explosions from inside Cells
millions per second
to the finite Pauses

between Ideas
there is no need
for additional

What I would give
for an isotropic Sunday
at the beach not
one Wave cracking.
