Wringing Out My Childhood Dishtowel


Stevensville-Baroda Rd.
United States
41° 58' 52.8312" N, 86° 29' 50.2908" W


the bottle sipped from your lips
intoxicating virtue
leaving me to emerge
as the art of an alcoholic.

(breathe sigh)

girls soaked in gin
urged me to use my inside voice.



I have this poem and my other writing posted on my blog, as well.
