sleep

bed linens – white

After tucking Sammy in for the night, I looked at my math
my chemistry
two books and a play
all stacked up and patiently waiting.

I tapped through the inputs on my monitor.
Fuck it, I’ll just go to sleep…
so I did.

Sleep.

I could taste the bourbon.

Two years ago and three years back
I met you on a morning like this
when you were in love
(maybe you still are)
and I fell out of balance with solitude.

22 and 33 later
I’d fucked myself completely.

Now what?
You drink scotch, and I…well, I only dream up the memory of bourbon.
