10 Minute Poetry: "Drink"

Drink me down

Like a glass of water.

Quench your thirst

As all things do.

Take a drag

Reap the benefits.

Then pour a glass

Of me too.

Take a smoke,

Inhale, breathe.

You can't because

You're drowning too

Like me

I wanted to.


Lick the salt,

Watch him whip the horse

Win a race, cough up a lung,

And watch him reap the benefits.


Open a bottle

Or two, of scotch.

Pour the gold,

Take a shot.

And when you're done,

Have a taste of whisky.

I just had

A taste,

The last drop.


"10 Minute Poetry" is my own weekly poet's game, one in which I write an original piece of poetry, with nothing but a given title, in ten minutes.
