social butterflies…wallflower zombies…the drunks

the taste shifts from whiskey into wine
drunken drunkenness drinks the drunk
the poison of poisons each drunk has their
liquid nectar liquor thirsting for more
blackout vomit backs up in the mouth
tasty tasting taste of addicted soulless
predilection conviction of the obsession
the taste shifts from gin into beer
a poison of poisons each drunk has their
faith renewed drink after drink slam dead drunk
turning reality into the reality of denial
distilled libations gripping hands masquerade
social butterflies…wallflower zombies…the drunks
a trompe l’oeil tragic still life tableau distilled…at the bar
a poison of poisons each drunk has their
euphoria the rapture the rush of booze
each drink is nirvana each swallow an illusion
the taste shifts from drunkenness to social denial
blackout vomit backs up in their mouths
anonymous alcoholics remaining anonymous
social butterflies…wallflower zombies…the drunks
turning reality into the reality of denial
the poison of poisons each drunk has their
faith renewed drink after drink slam dead drunk

social butterflies…wallflower zombies…the drunks by 


Drink responsibly sage advice to those who are not alcoholics…?…he or she who is without sin slam down those shooters and slip and slide morphing into social butterflies…wallflower zombies…the drunks…puking your brains out and then the blackout…everyone has an addiction…you do know yours…?

A penciled note on old and torn lined paper stained with red wine that fell out of The Book of Ruminations.

…forever dyslexic one word less is one word more…design follows the eye before the shape shifts into form…when two hearts beat as one nirvana bliss a blink of joy…we are stardust star stuff of serendipity…art is a business of commodities for sale…caveat emptor oh yes for sure one woman’s junk is another man’s treasure…make me laugh and i am yours…

    great write monti!

  • Thank you and C.O.R.E. I truly appreciate you reading this…everyone has an “addiction” not little guilty pleasures…for some “self righteousness” is as destructive as alcohol abuse…and some are addicted to “not playing nice” dumping off their rude and obnoxious comments…c’est la vie.

    Almost everyone has an addiction to something however most of the good ones are either unhealthy, illegal or immoral. : D

  • …addicts in denial of their addictions quick to point it out in others peccadilloes…some socially acceptable like gossip and little white lies stuffed down their gullets with a mile high devils-food cake of crap backed up with prescription drugs and occasionally doing the neighbor or someone at work…while sipping too many Margaritas or soda pop off the shelf premixed alcoholic drinks…lord almighty you can do whatever you want until you get caught or take the vows and toe the line to the grave…TY2U…

    Bye, bye Miss American Pie
    Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry
    Them good ole boys were drinking whiskey in Rye
    Singin’ this’ll be the day that I die
    This’ll be the day that I die!

  • A classic slice of Americana pie…(pie a metaphor on so many levels of once upon a time of what never was just dreamy dreaming of tasty tasting of good times nostalgia or slam bang thank you m’am Miss American Creamy Creaming Creampie)…oh that Chevy almost went to the wrecking junkyard graveyard of like so many forgotten car manufacturers and,“Them good ole boys” rednecks then and they still are dumb ass rednecks drinking whiskey and Rye hooked on meth…the levee is dry like my dry martini…man-o-man I do miss a dry martini, gin and tonic tasty tequila shooters and red wine Merlot or a Cabernet…but most of all I miss cigarettes…sigh…cigarettes are better than sex…so I will sing along..,“Singin’ this’ll be the day that I die…This’ll be the day that I die!” Addictions can’t live with them can’t live without them…thanks for the drive by, a song is as good as a comment…?…big thanks to you Chiquita Mamacita.

    “I saw many CheVies in the leevy, but none of them were dry!! Chiquita Mamacita. xo” One at a time…? Or all at once…?
