While looking for himself,
He lost his way,
Words dried up,
Fermented liquids flowed,
One more, just one more,
He thought,
As the stains set in,
A clear head now a hazy memory,
Bad tastes barely masked by cheap toothpaste,
His daily shower a sanctuary,
Last nights filth washed away,
Unforgettable adventures he couldn’t quite remember,
Reflections revealed only a stranger,
Who was this person,
Why don’t they sleep,
This is how it is, he would remind himself,
I’m ok,
I’m ok.
