Maltose Junky

been on the South Beach
diet for days
maltose it seems is high on the GI
spikes the blood (sugar)
speeds desire for more
so no brew for me now seeking to avoid suffering
through South Beach

but she (the one who carries green apples in my dreams)
suffers somewhere in downstate ny
suffers trying to gain her life back
her electronic anklet
her poverty
her sitting in the corner bar nights (looking for what?)
now she sits all day in rehab
hoping to avoid suffering
hoping to get out
to again look for (what?)

so without beer and the maltose spike
or those salty carbs I crave
I'll sit in the dark up stairs
in this warm white house and children sleeping
breathing in her black
exhaling my rainbows
