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?
