To Porcupine…

To Porcupine
(After another long distance call)

Today I talked to you. It’s
Really odd how talking to
You is like that hospital
Injection of Morphine—the
Needle hurts so bad, but my
God! The high was so damn good!

Though it’s bad for me, You’re the
Opiate this addict wants.

So often lately, I just
Lie awake and think about
Everything I can’t have (and
Everything I want) And you,
Porcupine are everything!

-RW Hershey Jr, 1991

Robert wrote this for me when he was going to college in El Paso and I was pissing my mom off with $400 phone bills, which I would still be hearing about to this day if I hadn’t stopped talking to my mother!
