Again (poem)

I wrote this piece in March 2013. It’s a poem with its stanzas made of haikus… because haikus.

*  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *

Time to drink again
Another, then two, three, four
Until I cannot count

A shot of vodka,
Tequila, rum, and whiskey
Everything blurry

We shouldn’t be here –
Certainly not like this, now –
Can’t happen again

Another night of
Lust followed by much regret –
One time too many

I go home and cry
Damn my sheer stupidity
But it will happen


And again.
