the remnants of a whiskey and water drink.

Some of us die beautifully

some of us go out with

a house paid off, or

a retirement plan, or

a successful marriage, or

grown children, or

answered prayers, or

a morphine drip, or

the shut eyed broken hope of a new morning.

 

And some of us kneel before the fuse,

and blow.
