DRINK ME! Poem by matt fromm


use to be a bartender.
just told you to drink me.
guess you should know how to mix it.
. well alright.
. find an unwashed common glass
. throw in 2 cubes of human salt water
.2 ounces of issues unresolved
. a splash of memories from the night stand drawer
. a capfull of times she said she was leaving
.1/2 a shot of addiction
.1/2 a shot of finger pointing.
. a spoon full of promises broken
.2 dashes of friends who turned their backs
. float an ounce of times they said you can't do it
. stir with a cross turned upside down
. garnish with a suicidal lime
and drink me.
