drinks for one

From an outsiders perspective hes calm.
Sipping his drink in mask of placid.
Right hand rested on table.

Finishing a third.
My Drunk rapidly approaching my Pissed.
Ordering a fourth I consider dropping some food onto all this drink.
I instead choose to nurture my booze-on
Reaching this conclusion, I make my fourth a double.

The Fourth
Mixed by The Devil
Served by gods of jealousy
Once over the lips my world is fading

An hour and a half.
Essentially five drinks in.
And shes nowhere.
My Drunk and my Pissed are staring eye to eye
starting to intermix.
My mind faced with Jealousy, Fear, Anger and Booze.
At any levels, thats a toxic combo.

Two hours down.
Three singles and two doubles in.
Confusion has entered the fray.
Im starting to think I should have left after fifteen minutes.

When she makes her entrance

For a moment, the sight renders me stupid.
All emotion replaced by my want of her.

It was Drunk who stepped up first.
Leaving Cool to eat its dust.

Where the fu
Lips interrupting my obscenity.
Followed by
Sorry, I got held up.

Now Confusion is getting aroused and Anger is becoming unreliable.
Though not to worry
Fear
Jealousy
and Booze way have my back.
Fear says:
You know Ive been here fore a couple of hours considering possibilities of your demise

She says:
Laughing slightly
Dont be a drama hag
Placing another kiss
A little harder

Fear dies in a hurry

Jealousy lacing up its boots says:
Why the hell didnt you call?
Seriously
What is this the stone age?
You have a phone
Right?

She says:
Take it easy dad
Just as I was leaving, I dropped the damn thing right in a puddle.
Producing an obviously broken cell phone.
Grabbing my hand placing it on her knee

Jealousy kicks off its boots and turns on television

Booze.
Booze wants a piece so f bad my mouth begins to water
However, Boozes reaction times were never that strong
Mustering zeal for the occasion

Picking up my empty, a waitress sets down another double fuel for the fire.

Having not been able to taste itself for some time
Booze says:
Drink it in half

With ignorance, only a man could posses
I drink it in half

Now Booze says:
We are ready
Let us give her all you have got

Feeling empowered with resolve only Booze can give
I say:
Mawt teh facf Ib bid hrrr fro tow houses dnnt yuuu thanf aloud my!

She replies:
What

To which I say:
Excuse me (burp)
I’llllll be right back.

Making my way to the restroom
Booze and I fight the whole way
Me calling it a damn liar
Booze saying it could not have gone more perfect

Inside the bathroom
We really start to go at it
Booze trying to convince me to get back out there for the finishing blow.
However, I’ve had enough

Two fingers later
Booze is out of my house
Now the plumbings problem

After some profound rinsing and half a pack of breath strips
I make my return
Thinking
Maybe I should just get in a cab and call her from there
Oh, right
The obviously broken cell phone

Fuck
I must face the music
