Really High

If you hold
the vapor deep
in your lungs,

long enough
to quickly recite
"The Lord's Prayer"
in your head,

by the time
you get to
Amen,

you will get
really high,

and really high
just means
you're closer
to Heaven,

closer to God.

  1. I would probably pass out holding it in that long, but then I can't even smoke cigarettes.

  3. Huh. Like compulsively counting steps as you go up, maybe? Climbing the stairway to heaven? This is really an interesting reflection.

  4. Gotta admit I laughed out loud when I read this. My experience was a bit different. Just got really sick, and coughed til I thought I'd never be able to breathe again. After three separate tries, decided it just wasn't meant to be.

  5. If that's what it takes to be closer to God, I don't think I'll make it. But you have a good time.

  6. Ah, the smoke of prophecy. Guess that was the sales pitch back in the day.
