May – Addictions: Craving

We’re all looking
for the hit,
maybe sugar
or alcohol,
or the glowing end
of a cigarette
between lonely lips

millions of hands
disconnected from
their hearts,
reach first
for their phones,
and scroll through
lives of the other

searching online
for the thing
that google can’t find

to be connected
to something bigger
than yourself
