WARM BEER FOR BREAKFAST
(9/27/13)


tops
popped
hours before
there were no
cold bubbles
to impede
the delivery
process

flat
and room
temperature
the liquid
easily flowed
down
the
throat

fresh
alcohol
hit the system
in a matter
of minutes
and rejuvenation
began

euphoria
emerged
that rivaled
the drunk
from the night
before

invincibility
coursed
through the
veins

insanity

a bottom
would be reached
many years
later

but
with the sun
coming up
on that
fine
Alaskan day

immortality
seemed
possible

and all
so
necessary
