thick glass

three weeks
and the shards were still there
still scattered on the tiles
of the kitchen floor

that was a thick glass
meant for classy strong drinks
like whiskey

Yeah, now that he thought about it
it was whiskey she
ordered. But he filled
the glass with milk and said,
“You know what the doctor said, mother.
No more alcohol for you. Here, try
this instead.”

And he would strongly
prefer not to remember what followed
after

The shards were still
on the kitchen floor

and the gash still on the side of
his neck. Stitched now
but painful nonetheless

  3. So stay away from alcohol! Find peace in your breaths. Make your breaths your alcohol. Make yourself feel relaxed with your breaths. Don’t put your peace in others control i.e. alcohol. Put your peace in your own control i.e. in your breaths.
