Those Thoughts

How summer sparkles,

when there’s no sun to be seen.

Too scared to sleep or wake,

strapped in sweat-sodden sheets.

But for my radio –

stamping out the silence, stifling them below.

 

(Do you still hear,

those thoughts?

It’s the easy way out.

Reach out, for the vodka,

lying

in the bottle; as low as your spirits.)

 

So cheers. To salvation,

through saturation. The anticipation,

of getting pissed.

Of passing out, for your sake:

to sleep and not to dream,

to dream and not to wake.
