"It's about words, and words are all I have…"

SMELLS LIKE

SMELLS  LIKE  ROCK      BOTTOM

People always talk about  hitting bottom:

That was my bottom   I haven’t hit bottom   yet  

I have hit bottom   You have to hit bottom     before

 

Could it be that those who have in fact      hit bottom

are no longer here   to make the long

climb     back up ?

 

Or perhaps when we toss    hit bottom  

around   we are building a massive scaffold     of denial  

We must deny the  oncoming fast and furious rushing toward us    bottom

 

Be skeptical   Be vigilant    and if you hear

yourself uttering the words  I have hit bottom

know that you are in    the wrong heaven –
