Sometimes

I drink wine, and then I write, but mostly I drink wine. Sometimes I write more than I drink, but mostly I drink wine. Sometimes I push at the threshold of imagination, and scream into the silence of my room. Sometimes I dangle an unlit cigarette from my lip with no intention of ever smoking it; with no intention of ever smoking again. Sometimes I think of people I’ve wronged, and loved, and forgotten until that exact moment when the song on the radio and the moth fluttering in the corner, and the dripping of the sink, and the smell of the breeze remind me of all I’ve lost…and gained. Sometimes I close my eyes, they’re so heavy anyway, and run callused fingertips over my familiar face to pretend I’m someone else. Sometimes I convince myself I am anyone else except the person staring back at me from the last sip of alcohol left in my glass, or puke in the toilet, or blood on the mirror.

But mostly I drink wine…
