every night he drinks and every morning he wishes he hadn’t

Loosing his edge
like a thread
that unravels
your sleeve

Drunk but maintaining
his balance by
closing one eye

He makes it through
another night of lies

Hums a tune
he can’t remember
the words to
but he loves it
just the same

(D. James)
