Sweetened coffee, a hard pack of Pall Mall’s and music. This is my morning ritual, no deviation, no variance. Caffeine that I’ve grown immune to, I don’t get jittery or get overcome by a burst of energy. Acrid cigarette smoke that is turning my lungs into a deathly shade of coal. But, I suck them down, savoring the nicotine as it tickles and scars my throat. Ear buds planted firmly and deep. Songs with dark and potent lyrics or a slick vibe, penetrating those crevices that I keep hidden. A mental lockbox.
It’s been awhile since I’ve posted some songs on here and the opening paragraph above was a chance for me to hear myself talk because the beige walls that I constantly stare at are adept at reciprocating that thousand yard stare but they don’t listen very well. There’s no repartee, just silence. And judging. “Get off the couch” the walls seem to infer. I’m not a good listener, either.
So yeah, below are some songs I’ve been listening to recently. Light a smoke, take a sip of some free trade coffee and lose yourself in the music. Pretty sure I stole that last line from Eminem but I’m OK with that, sadly.
