Fleeting Passion - Poem by Jon Edward Walker

I thoroughly enjoy when
the madness consumes, overwhelms
and you’re left with bruises
broken hearts and homes
shitty cars
and DUI’s
lawyers that love you
and ones that don’t
young women and men
who idolize your
debauchery
and bank accounts that
mysteriously fill up
despite persistent draining,
jobs that willingly
and happily perpetuate
your alcoholism
are the best.
This morning,
two days before Christmas
the madness has just passed
and I will sober,
celebrate Christmas
with family and friends
think of my son,
send him presents
love and
prayers
