Cocaine is the high class courtesan of drug use. At best it is an expensive mistress who demands a lot out of you. Speed is just a cheap whore who will fuck anybody, and asks that you simply stay awake. Whereas coke falsely embraces the charisma of creative spontaneity....that heartfelt experiment with impulse....and smothers it with accidental affection, methamphetamine abuses the charm of artistic risk and instead cold-heartedly strips naked and surgically eviscerates our subconscious obsessions and feeds them to any animal who will eat it. Even when it's paid for, speed takes the romance out of sex. Coke just takes everything, period.
