our stories hide

between couch cushions and
in empty medicine vials.

the let loose moments
of garbled wrappers and stenched bottles
drizzled over our bedside table 
like syrup on empty caloried

we keep eating them.
that first bit so sweet.
we call the end 
the constant middle 

between the purge-less binge 
and death.
