why i'm giving sobriety a chance

by Justin Hyde

i can't have six

seven beers a

nice safe guffaw

through center soul

it's twelve


and five or six shots

coming to naked

on a strange couch

sandpaper of a siamese cat

licking blood off my knee

band saw

and a roofing crew

off in the distance

neck and neck

with a

chorus of hammers

in my head.
