The price of last night

Waking to sight of day The ironic disorientation bedroom ceiling moviescreen fades out this dreams last scene left looking dumbfounded at tiles Sunrays shine splintered through bent blinds casting illuminous entities into otherwise darker turf Blanket tangles limbs and ambition tight traversing body and shielding one eye guarding it from the illuminites I draw higher to seek shelter for both Life's rumble manifests in murmurs builds gradual, head clears Horns, tires, voices-reality appears The window sings soundtrack for urban noise the horn annoys-the voices noise-the bird song annoys noise annoys noise and pisses me off!!! Mind flips modes from hazy wander lust To more acute senses... tune and adjust The morning is a step ahead we will assimilate soon-just before noon Rise ...casting off covers takes convincing face the day begrudging and wincing See...this Evening's eve was very good to me I reveled in debauchery-I tore the town down, you see? I went to the school of bar-red knocks--and rocked bellied up brasher shot for shot As the sour mash showed effects I drunk dialed my entire roladex Jameson ,my Irish ego, whispered dares to me I performed them to shocked stares, you See?! We gloated stumbling in revelry This is the price for the tab last night.... The noise pounds into my mind Street noise, chirp annoys, pound in my head noise noise annoys noise

Oh my goodness this is excellent!! As someone who's been in that situation I can safely say you describe it most eloquently and with a great deal of accuracy :) The imagery is brilliant, and it flows really nicely. You have a superb turn of phrase. I love it :D
