Succumbing: Random Twitter Poem for May 9th

Today’s poem succumbing was a particular challenge today due to the unique words submitted and perhaps the late hour of the day, in this poem I envisioned addiction and the hell/torture of finding/succumbing to the next fix only for the cycle to repeat again.  Though the addiction is not specified one can take away whatever meaning they want from the poem, I am curious about your own interpretation.  This poem included the 12 words (in bold) provided by the following Twitter players today:
@carolynsparkles (rhythmic), @2good2bbakery (celiac), @rachelle_drouin (synophrys, hoyden), @wippy_ (fornicate), @technicallyeasy (smack), @rarehero (poodle), @juliecheung @John_Meffen (postprandial), @goodyniosi (systemic), @barzane (gracious), @monnie311 (thee), @selurus (zip)

Synophrys – having a unibrow
Hoyden – a boisterous, bold, and carefree girl; a tomboy.
postprandial – after eating a meal
celiac – of, pertaining to, or located in the cavity of the abdomen.

Lost hoyden looking for smack
like a systemic rhythmic disease
poodle in heat looking to fornicate
bodies a connected synophrys blur
this gracious postprandial snack
lasting only a few moments
until the need to zip rises
need in a celiac void begging
trying to avoid partaking again
yet the fix always takes thee
and the cycle repeats itself

-Poem by Justin Germino
