Getting High

My drug of choice
has always been paint
under my fingernails
and sanding grit
stuck in my hair.
Addicted to flakes of color
and the feel of chalk
on my skin;
getting high
on nothing more
than falling into
a pattern of easy breathing,
gripping a stained brush
swaying my hips along
with a radio playing
SRV or B.B.
in the kitchen.
