INEBRIATE'S BALL
(1/7/18)

a recurring
fantasy
during
my drinking
days

luck
upon
a wad
of bills

buy
some nice
clothes

rent
a limo

pick up
some classy
whore

dine
at an expensive
restaurant

play
at success
for just
one evening

then after
visit
a friend

a relative

impress them
with my newfound
acumen

but
I knew
that they
would still
know me

still see
the drunk
in my eyes

see through
my lies

even
my dreams
were failures

as I cobbled
change
for cheap
beer

a young man
lost
in old man
bars

glad
to be left
alone
