Cincinnati Poetry Month Daily: Dear Heroin by Connie Murray

Advertisements

Here is a poem by Connie Murray (soon Hughes) of Florence, Kentucky on the difficult issue of addiction in our community. It is forthcoming in Connie’s second chapbook, The Mirror.

 

Dear Heroin

Thank you
Thank you for taking
the pain away
Our beloved
have happily succumbed
to your relief
The train track is
very clearly
spelled out
across our arms
We have reached
our destination
Sincerely,

NARCAN

Dear Narcan

Your appearance
brings hope
Unfortunately,
it is only
a temporary
fix
to a definitive
argument
the grass
is SO
much greener
on the other side
Please step aside
Sincerely,

Bob Marley

Connie Hughes
