Bar Keep One For The Road

Life turns the warmth in the rays of the sun away
then dull the cool ocean mist that spray, must that
emptiness gnaws to the bone, from the awareness
of being all alone.

Compulsion is mired in those dangerous deeds
while depression conspires with that belligerent
need. Processing memory in need of modification
consumed by toxic vapors in a prolong intoxication

Sobriety’s disdain of all regulations, then you tremble
with pain from lacking rehabilitation. Your lips are dry
the tongue is worst, those violent shakings from your
burning thirst.

Your tolerance is high, unsociable at best, you indulge
in that old corn rye omitting the rest. Dangerous when
dizzy your current condition, at days end you’re in a fetal

Alcohol syndrome from the excess, a completed liquor
store run viewed as success. Heavy headaches from habitual
hallucinations, chronic cirrhosis was in the autopsy’s information,
now unclaimed before cremation, concluding a hopeless situation.

I'm a father, friend, and a family man, I believe in right and wrong, I understand the value of standing on your own. I have an iron will with a poet's heart, a belief in God is where it starts.
