I was touched long before

this thing began, and filled

with trepidation


over random

matters and


(when success was still

assured – in a time before clear


So pound this

down, for my sake


Forget (with)


all your liquid pleasures


Jager, melon wine, and

beer (all rice and corn and

piss) ‘ritas if ya got ‘em


Who is dying now?


I was the king of party killers when

the lies and booze were smoother
