POETRY / GHB / Teo Mungaray / Writer of the Month

Gamma-Hydroxybutyric Acid. Jeff mixes it with cranberry. Gives me a one-gram dose.
Drink the bitter stuff fast, then wash it down with Gatorade. Takes a bit to kick in.

& pull it into the living room. Other men come & go. Jeff opens a suitcase of clothes.
