Not Even Not Zen 307: Vodka and Verse

Vodka and Verse

On the second drink
I swore to you I wasn't an alcoholic.
You laughed and nodded
And kept talking.

Twenty minutes later
You're still talking.
I'm pouring another drink.
If only you could have an interesting thought
Or a malapropism even,
So I wouldn't look like a liar here.

 -- Eric Gallagher
