Whiskey Trance

I’ve done it now,
wrapped myself up tight.
There’s a ribbon at the bottom,
pull it and this man
will unravel
like baseball bellies.

Bring me back to freshman year,
the invisible squirt,
and then I’d have the
urge to laugh.

She orders a milkshake
with two straws
and she asks what I’m thinking.

By the end of day,
no pep left for witty banter.
I’ve just escaped with my life.
