Whiskey Stains

Darkness lingers 
on the other side 
of the glass
Sweet disaster
rings in my ears
As I drink myself
to indifference

Tiny buckets 
of amber radium
burn trails 
down my throat
leaving craters 
in my soul

Never reaching 
the thirst or the 
inviting darkness

In one-eyed splendor
I look up from my glass
to rearrange dusty words
and search my desert soul
for a sliver of shade

But the darkness remains
just out of reach
yet never more
than a drink away.
