Thinking of you

Whiskey hiccups
as the floor creeks
on my way to pee
feet brace against
sway

and yet
the floor gets
wet
hiccups
make it worse

I hear the phone
bzzzz
on the nightstand
reflexively turn.

That’s going to leave a
stain.

Carefully stepping
past familiar obstacles
I surrender to the
mattress
pull the discomforter
to my chin
and coax the
final drop from the
glass.
