6 AM

The-Bar-Is-Open

 

it’s 6 am

and before

I can plant my feet

on the floor

a tsunami of shit

crashes into my heart

I wish that I was dead

and that some better man

had taken my place

I bathe and shave

I follow the routine

but inside I’m dying

from an incurable disease

there are parasites in my head

that won’t leave me in peace

I’m headed for a downtown bar

to seek out some relief

.

    1. Yes - I tend to feel that way when I'm down - but when I'm up I feel immaculate
