A shot

Location

Shoulders prickling with Excitement

A bubble in my chest

Focus naught on any else

My thirst is unrelenting

 

And then I take a shot

 

Coursing through my veins

Like a soothing elixir

Mind is greased

Body relaxed

 

And then I take a shot

 

Now my muscles tighten

My vision is blurred

Thoughts inhibited

Actions undeterred

 

And then I take a shot

 

Here appears the woman

The apple of my eye

I met two hours past

This angel from the sky

 

And then I take a shot

 

Table came from nowhere

I think I stubbed my toe

I wish I was a bear…

I really love the snow

 

And then I take a shot

 

I fuckin’ love you man

What’s your name again?

Everything is spinning

Winning...Binning…Flinning

 

And then I take a shot

 

My porcelain pillow

Where at last I lay my head

Pit stop on the floor

In vomit I’m found dead

 

And then they take a shot
