Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

thought process on a relapse
3 pounds of grey matter control you
take the drink? don't take the drink?
insane? sane?

drink the poison?

why not|why not|why not

the explosion of bitter hops on your tongue
a harsh burn of alcohol in your throat
that sweet warmth that spreads through your body

poison the mind?

why not|why not|why not

shattering glass and crunching aluminum
the flash of red and blue sirens
clinks of steel and bruises on your wrist
a 9-year-old's sobs

don't take the drink|don't take the drink|don't take the drink
