Based on a True Story


The morning sun
Had just kissed the window

Through the blinds
A gleam of sunlight
Danced inside the whiskey glass
I held within my fingers

She walked into the kitchen
Carrying her prescription bottle
Of self reliance
"You know I still blame you
For my pill addiction"

I took a sip of the whiskey
"Yeah-why is that? "

She opened the bottle
And took a palm full of pills
With a glass full of water
"Because you introduced me to this world"

I walked over and grabbed the bottle
From her shaking fingers
I reached in
And with no purpose
Took two pills myself
I swallowed them with a sip of whiskey
"Guess you could call that
One of my finer accomplishments"
