Pre-game: Getting together to prepare for the game. Drinks are consumed, game outfits are donned, potential teammates and opponents are discussed, goals are set, and strategies are planned for various contingencies…
Drugs are instruments of both good and bad. They exist on interesting playing fields, and in the most abstract and symbolic ways.
Yesterday night I was with a friend relaxing. about a hour or so into our chill time her friend had come by the house in a fuss. My friend asked her friend if he was okay. He replied “No, not in anyway”. I assumed he wanted to sit and talk about it but instead he pulled out a cig and smoked it in the back. he came back a little later and told us that he had done some ‘black man thinkn’ and was alright and we chatted a little bit after that.
this brought up interesting points about drugs to me: They are used both to poison and pacify, they could possibly trancend the barrier between good and bad; whats wrong and what’s right.
What if he had never gotten that cigarette, his lungs would have thanked him but his mind wouldn’t have let him sleep.
I guess before i go into drugs, i should explain what their definition is in my terms.
Drugs:To stupefy, to pacify, to poison, to administer (x) or to enhance a situation.
So i kinda use drugs as a verb :-P
and my stance on drugs? I’m neither for nor against them, i use ‘em as an instrument for ‘good times’.
