Our relationship was forged to the soundtrack of Yoko Ono's magic,

Look what the Cudney drug in

You never know when reality is going to toss something from your long forgotten alcohol-filled past up onto your current shore.

David Cudney, an ex-Cleveland assemblage artist who split for Albuquerque, New Mexico maybe 20 years ago or so, posted one of my mother’s and two of my old assemblages from his art collection on my FaceBook wall.

These are from the late 1980s and/or early 1990s, back in my heavy drinking days. (I quit alcohol April 21, 1991 after drinking myself to death and waking up in intensive care).

Here’s a poem from the same period.

Self Portrait

I am an alcoholic and a
drugoholic and a
bookoholic and a
filmoholic
and
a
high
o
holic
and
(I use laser beams)

I drink it if I got it and I
smoke it ‘til it’s gone

— Smith, 1990
