Experience Experiments

I am that marker pen
Dizzy scent quickly spent
I am that aerosol
Capped blast that didn’t last
I am that industrial glue
Bagged and tagged
On youths spotted face
I am that cigarette
I am that ale
That shot
That grape
I am that dubious weed
Giggling high and far
I am that powder white
Fast and bright
I am that powder brown
I am that crystal grown
I am needle and rope and spoon
And pipe and bag and knife
I am freedom trapping you

I love how this builds from the innocuous to the heavy! So well written! And the rhyme doesn't overpower the meaning. Good job!
