    those of us
    who drink
    tend to sink
    to the bottom
    of the list of
    the unforgotten
    and then we lay
    there rotting

    such a pitiful
    sordid decay

    my words to you
    they were prostitute
    I simply sold
    them all away
    and for what?
    for this rot?
    I am destitute
    and so startled
    with silent dismay
    imposed invisibility
    is killing me
    you all wish
    you all wished
    me away

    this screwed nonentity
    of no known ability
    you all believed what
    the vodka did say

    believe me
    I exist
    not just a
    shadow
    In the mist


    but I am broken
    with little to say

    I've said it before and I'll say it again: you write better drunk than many of us do stone cold sober. I liked it a lot and thought it had a lot to say. You're a poetic genius, you are, and I'm glad to read another of your works.:smile:

    love,

    least xoxo
