PEE FREAK
(10/12/10)


24 years
of drinking
to excess
led to thousands
of extra trips
to restrooms
parking lots
flower pots
closets
   wherever
for urinary
relief

sobriety
transformed
the beer can
into a coffee cup
so instead of alcohol
the body then
felt the need
to flush caffeine
constantly
from the
system

now
over 50
with pipes
and prostate
petering out
the desire
to relieve
the perceived
pressure
only increases

I am not
pissingly
optimistic
for the coming
years

one day
a raindrop
on the windshield
will be
my undoing
