Is that an exothermic reaction in my chest,
Or am I going to be sick?
Was I mixing chemicals last night,
Or perhaps it was drinks?
I think the latter.
My head’s spinning like a quantum state.
My memories, a sea of dark matter.
I want to go get water but my bed holds me tight;
My duvet is the event horizon.
No progression, just a painfully pounding prefrontal cortex.
My room-mates are not going to be happy about all the mess.
Could I get away with blaming entropy for the disorder?

I don’t care what chemist say,
Ethanol and water is not a solution.
