Evening Devotionals

That night I got drunk and staggered off to the movies
like Frankenstein in search of a friend.

Throughout the previews
a river of rum poured from Planters jar to Pepsi cup,
and was quickly swilled down to murkier depths.
It was a sad movie and I cried a lot.
The girl in the movie drank too.
I liked that part and cried harder.
