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…
