Finish Your Drink And Go - Poem by Lenny Orlando Camacho

grab the glass full of fire
and methodically shove it down the throat

run your dirty sleeve again
over the broken lip thirsty of a new hello

ask the barkeep for a refill
another glass of fire to quench your soul

drink it down fast, never slow
close the blood shot eyes, feel the warmth

ask for a glass of forgetfulness
finish it off and then go, never to return

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Liquor is sometimes an answer to a broken soul
