Allison Morris #2 'Empties'

I wake,
slick-eyed and sore,
and find books strewn around me
like empty bottles.
I went too hard last night,
sculling sentences
whole paragraphs
cracking a new chapter
almost before
I'd finished the last one.
No way
could I have driven home.


  1. Ha! You and me both. I keep eyeing the dictionary on the top shelf. I think I need to cut back some.

  2. Oh funny, I love it. I really get the eyes!

  3. That is wonderful. Book club people be warned :)
