ARE U CLEAN - Poetry About Drug Use
For Someone I Know Who Is Hurting.....
Are U Clean?
Are you clean as your neighbor
The one who sweeps the floor
Or are you hiding in your shelter
From the glowing uniform
Did you forget your birthday
Or just forget the time
Does it seem like you are sleeping
Through the crazy x-ray storm.
It's as clean as you make it
Throw your paint onto the sun
When you clean up all of your thinking
Then we'll know your war is done
Shake away the old man
Who speaks the hidden tongue
He will guide you through your pleasures
Then hurt you til you run
Into the clean and forgotten air.
Are U clean like the duster
When it forgets about the dust
Are you clean like a pleasure
That forgot about the lust.
You are clean when you run
Clean beneath the sun
But you forgot to measure
How your dress has come undone.
