barflypoet & author of dark fiction


‘i can control my own destiny’

i told you i’d stop drinking.
i lied.

listen, i’m going to die one of two ways:
under the constant rolling of your eyes
or weighted with a bloated liver.

so when the reaper comes calling
i’ll go happily
free of your shit
a scotch in my hand.

    Raw and poetic, dark yet smile inducing…far away but closely understood.
    Here’s to imaginary drinks shared in an interdimensional bar, at fuck knows o’clock in the early late hours , with words and poetry
    😊
