MORE THAN NIGHT

MORE THAN NIGHT

I am searching
For something
More than night

More than
The dark
The evening

Under stars
Under the moonlight
Another life

Or perhaps
I just need
Another drink

Whiskey
On the side

The most important things to do in the world are to get something to eat, something to drink and somebody to love you.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

 

whisky

OF POETRY, WHISKEY AND BUK

2 shots = happiness

3 shots = love

 

While 4 shots will

make you Bukowski

or at least you think

so at the bar.

 

and 5 shots will

make you a genius

as you stumble

towards the mic,

as you mumble

something incredible

and all the other

drunks applaud

 

(and that none of them will ever remember)

 

and by 6 shots

you are invincible

and by 7 you are god

and by 9 you are just a poet

writing sonnets to the floor

 

“oh floor, beneath thy

porcelain sculpture

beautiful, my love,

 

the world spinning,

swimming around

thy sorry sorry

skull.”

 

fin.
