i haven't had a drop in five years





i haven't had a drop in five years
except during Lent and Passover
(ok, occasionally when i'm alone)
yet we keep a cabinet full,
under glass, pinot, cabanet,
Tanqueray, Moet and goodness
knows what else is in there. i don't
stop to look-in these days but
don't get me wrong, i'm not
a teetotaler. of course it's hard.
then there's my fucking heritage
and a myriad other admonitions.
i suppose i simply lack a staunch
partner willing to hang one on
for i've never liked doing it alone.
