I was tired of living, but all it took was a spliff to transform me from a state of fatigue and languish to a state of ease and revery.

I was walking in a trail, with the sun peaking from between the long bushes on to the spot where I stopped.

I lit my joint. took a long inhale. Felt the inhale linger down my throat and branch out to my lungs.

I let out my exhale onto the ray of sunshine blinding my face.
