They're actually kind of pretty
if you ignore the chemical cocktail
the mind-altering potion
if you don't mind the
"extremely rare possible side effects (affecting less than 1 in 100 consumers)"
if you take the small white capsule
and hold it between your shaking fingers
and bring it to your lips
and feel the smoothness of the passion
the memories dissolving on your tongue
if you like the anticipation
of not knowing
what comes next
if you like the thrill
of becoming
someone else's puppet

and they've got you
