Sweet Cocaine Blues

By Torrey Kurtzner

Sweet cocaine blues flows inside of my mind.

As it passes through I can’t help but find

My body dancing to a beat so rad;

Dirty Diana, Michael Jackson: Bad,

Rocking my twenty-something soul so blind.

The club bleeds neon as people snort lines.

I join them in unity as we grind

Across the foggy floors, a sight so sad.

Sweet cocaine blues.

The fun falters as my heart skips a rhyme,

The club goes dark as my psyche loses time,

My nose drains regret and my knees go bad;

Yet still I dance to the rhythm of mad.

Nineteen Eighty-Seven, hell of a crime.

Sweet cocaine blues.
