"Its morning, and im getting pissed already. Wow? ? ? ? ? "

the comment resonates
with youth memories
need open appeal

of an early
morning drink
resisted taken...

drink drank in desperate need
in friend recreational enjoyment
drinks are downed for myriad reasons...

sometimes the body
needs to escape the mind
drinking worries away

drowning problems

the need to escape words
thoughts pain
can be

dangerously real

or drinking
to refresh
the spirit;

but remember
when you come up for air
intelligence youth beauty

cannot always
be exempt from pain
inner beauty

inner courage
will always rise
you have that in spades...

take care there
I will have a drink here
to your health...

late afternoon here
and a lot of work
already done....
