Alone in a bar without
the money or will to drink
which is just as well.
I bet the first sip tastes
pretty good, before it starts to
feel too good and so, so bad.
I’ve had my share of drinks –
and probably your share too.
I’ve usually lacked discipline,
it’s been a common thread. So I
come here now to test that, to test
myself, my patience. My nerve.
It’s what I deserve and what I need.
Anyone can drink. That part
is easy – until it isn’t.
