The Whisky Blot
Journal of Literature, Poetry, and Haiku
I have wasted so many things
In my life
But I have never wasted
A drop of whisky.
Poured it very carefully,
Drained every glass,
Finished every bottle,
The empties displayed like trophies.
I allow it into my room every night.
Better than sleeping pills,
Kinder than a stranger’s caress
In a cold room at midnight.
