Drink Box


Drink Box



Strong stuff

Sip again

Stronger still

Delicate; what’s that?

Rosy; who’s that?

A light comes on

Another goes dark


A sip

A positive step

Too tired to tumble

Too slippery to slur

I’m weightless now

Floating bloating

Spaceman vintage


A sip

The next one comes

The one after that comes back

Go home, oleander

Remember where?

Fondle your keys

Force the water down


A sip

A different kind

Lying in bed

Spinning in bed

The morning hates me

But the morning ends

  1. Drink boxes must have changed since my kids were small. Last I heard the biggest headache to come out of those were worms. Yours sound so much more ‘interesting’.
