waiting it out (American Sonnet)

never had the good drugs
just filtering gallons of the worlds weakest poisons
pedestrian sub-poisons if you will
high fructose corn syrup
or some orange dust that tastes like cheese

we are just wasting time
or doing laundry
till the next alarm goes off

my crime is watching reports of who the Olsen Twins killed
my crime is watching Rey Mysterio do the 619

and some poor Reservist
is going to give his right leg
just to be as bored and idle
as i am
