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"

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
