scotch and scars.

 

one conceals the remnants of pain. the other treats it.

 

is it no wonder then that a bar is a natural part of the healing process?

a place where memory massages old hurts as well rips them open anew;

a refuge where booze loosens secrets at our lips and

passing hours only instigates the bite at the back of our throats.

 

gather your drink into your hands and take a long look at the raised tissue crisscrossing these limbs.

some call it a disfigurement. others the dark beauty of life.

 

let us drink then to the wonders of these wounds…
