requiem for an alcoholic (requiem for me)

a mug of coffee

full of wine

it’s 6:17 am

nothing but time

hope floats on thin air

whispering promises

above me

were it anything but lies

on the bottom of

a fake cup of coffee

on a fake morning

fake online

pretending

tick tock

mind the time

and a mug of coffee

full of wine

it’s 6:18 am
