Holocene

I took the lessons you taught 
to heart,
but only after you were gone
did I turn it into action.

You’re the least expensive
habit
I ever developed,
and maybe that’s why I got addicted so quickly,

and why,
even after all the cigarettes and whiskey,
I’m still trying to replicate
the high.

So long
and goodbye
to yellow brick roads.

I’m finally
paying
the toll
for my
arrogance.
