Everunclear

The only thing that becomes clear
As I take my second shot of Everclear
Is that my alcohol tolerance is unreasonably high.

I surmise that Bukowski and being 20 are to blame.

My liver should speak up and tell me that I’m being abusive.

Alcohol is an antiseptic;
Antiseptics kills germs, bacteria and other nasty, deadly things.
I have some things inside of me that need to die.

When did I learn to drink like a 32-year-old divorcee?

  1. You shouldn’t take shots of everclear. But if you do, you should make a drink called strip-n-go-naked. As the name implies, it drives people to do that. Not that you should. Just that you might.
