Cocaine (Yes- day 13)

You’re the white powder of cocaine beneath my feet

You made me say yes too many times

Yes to starbursts and stepping over the line,

yes to mountains and magic,

battleships and blades of grass


You made me say yes too many times,

a black hole I can’t escape

You don’t need to speak for me to stay,

you don’t need to leave for me to break down

You can control me just by lingering in the background


You made me say yes

to things you knew were wrong

and you knew I knew about her

but who can hold back from the free fall of fate,

who can say no to cocaine?
