a glass of scotch
poured neat
never argues
never bitches, never
nags or demands
or expects
a gawdamn
thing

no

it calms and inspires,
talks softly
of better days both
ahead and behind,
looses the tongue
and frees the mind
to dream of wine
and roses

it warms the belly
and tingles the toes,
shivers the spine
and soothes the throes
of jangled nerves
and the pains
of bones
and time

yes

this amber elixir
cures all that ails
until it bites you
in the ass
and settles
down to dine
on your
liver
