Rookie (Living in my reality / Dying in the world)

Bar Poem by C.R. Ebowski

Slam a shot of whiskey
Burning down your throat
Order another double
It becomes your scapegoat

Take a drag of a cigarette
Forcefully inhaled
Another breath is exhaled
Of the life you failed

Clinch your fist
Smash it against the bar
Ignore the radiating pain
Not knowing who you are

Walk into the open
Fresh air doesn’t do any good
Get in your piece of shit car
Wishing somebody understood
