liquor


used to be
all about the
crushed cans
and rushed plans,

but liquor works
quicker in the
worst way.

i learned that Redbull
gives you wings,
so we mixed it into drinks–

i flew away with
my cousin on a thursday.

beer tastes better,
i just need a bit more now,
and there’re no bodegas
out here, i just get robbed
at the liquor store now.

four bucks for a
bottle of beer,
just to get bloated
before tipsy.

and let it be noted,
i don’t know how
to pace myself,
i’m still learning
how to drink these.

i’m better at making
plans now, got a couple
in the works. the trick
is staying drunk enough
to watch it all reverse,
invert, submerge;
watch them drown away.

i used to be
all about the
crushed cans
and rushed plans,

but liquor works today.
