I stopped at Speedway
Got their biggest coffee -
42 oz of caffeine
To accelerate my heart
And let the sadness pass
More quickly than it had been
Unaided by a stimulant.

But the soul is not a muscle
Or a chemical to alter.
I moved faster yet
My thoughts were set in stone -
A boulder I might try and kick
But only break my toe.
Sigh, I miss you.
